Moeen Ali IPL 2023: Moeen Ali Became the Angel of Chennai Super King

Naam Moin Ali… Kam… Gave Chennai a win that almost got out of hand. After setting a target of 218 in 20 overs, the Chennai Super Kings fans were sure that Lucknow would be easily beaten. But in reply, LSG scored almost 80 runs in 5 overs without taking wickets. From here the fear of the match being one-sided was increasing. Captain Dhoni handed the ball to Moeen Ali for the first time in the match with great expectations. Third ball of the sixth over, full length on the middle stump at a speed of 94 kmph. Stormy batting Kyle Mayers tried to hit a six through a slog sweep sitting on his knees and caught straight to the deep midwicket fielder.

Kyle Meyers returned after scoring 53 runs off 22 balls and the hope of victory in the Chennai camp was raised. After this, Mitchell Santner made Deepak Hooda walk. On the second ball of the 8th over, captain KL Rahul also tried unsuccessfully to play a slog sweep in front of a full length ball bowled around off against Moeen Ali. He was also caught at deep midwicket. Score 82 for 3 out. Moeen Ali’s last ball of the 10th over was hit by Krunal Pandya down the track to the longon fielder. Jadeja took a brilliant catch. Krunal got 9 runs in 9 balls and Lucknow got the fourth blow on the score of 105. Moin Ali kept the second ball of the 14th over on the middle stump and clean bowled the dangerous looking Marcus Stoinis. Stoinis made 18 balls 21 and scored 130 for 5 outs.

For this reason, Moeen Ali announced his retirement from Test cricket at the age of just 33. Moeen Ali left Test cricket in the year 2021 with 5 centuries after taking 195 wickets in 64 matches and scoring 2914 runs at an average of 28.29. But cricket remained alive in him.
