England will face Pakistan in a seven-match T20I series. Moeen Ali was named captain of the team in their first game in Karachi and it will be a historic opportunity for him to lead England in the land his grandfather once belonged to.

Writing about his legacy and experiences, Ali in a column for the Daily Mail says that Pakistan will be his most special trip.

“I have been privileged enough to undertake many overseas trips as a British cricketer from Australia to South Africa to the Caribbean but this tour to Pakistan may be the most special of them all.” , the player said.

“It will be a memorable match in front of the Pakistani crowd and also a huge honor for Jos Buttler, while he recovers from injury and captains England,” he added.

Talking about his family’s heritage, Moeen said that his cricket comes from a rich heritage of Asian style.

“For those who don’t know, my family is British and Pakistani. Actually, my late grandmother was called Betty Cox but I think the selling side of me definitely came from my Pakistani side.” , I said.

“I grew up playing the game with a ball glued up like they play in Pakistan and my dad always said I played the Asian style game without fear,” he added.

He is playing a longer tour of Pakistan out of goodwill after a major failure to withdraw from the tour scheduled for 2021. This is a time when the Pakistani team has been to England several times during the Covid- 19 difficulties. The statements of the Pakistan Cricket Council mean that England need to take control of everything and they are committed to playing two more T20I matches to make up for it.
