The Pakistan Super League (PSL) is known for unearthing hidden gems, and 31-year-old Mohammad Ali is the latest talent catching everyone’s eye. Representing Multan Sultans, this right-arm pacer from Sialkot has emerged as a key cog in their bowling attack, impressing everyone with his consistent wicket-taking abilities and economical bowling.

Despite being relatively new to the big stage, Ali boasts an impressive domestic record. Playing for Central Punjab, he has already bagged 21 wickets in just 13 T20 innings, showcasing his potential. His Test debut against England in 2022 saw him pick up 4 wickets in two matches, further solidifying his talent.

This season’s PSL has been a breakout year for Ali. In the four matches he has played so far, he has captured a remarkable 10 wickets, averaging a mere 9.30 and boasting a strike rate of 9.60. His most impressive performance came against Islamabad United, where he scalped 3 wickets for just 19 runs. Even in the Sultans’ recent loss to Peshawar Zalmi, where they fell short by a narrow margin, Ali’s economical spell of 2/23 was a bright spot.

What truly sets Ali apart is his control over his deliveries. With an economy rate of 5.81 in the PSL, he consistently puts pressure on batsmen by minimizing scoring opportunities. This tight bowling not only restricts runs but also creates wicket-taking chances for himself and his teammates.

His performances haven’t gone unnoticed. Experts and fans alike are praising his efforts, labelling him as a potential gem for Pakistan cricket. His ability to swing the ball, maintain accuracy, and pick up crucial wickets makes him a valuable asset in any bowling attack.

While the season is still young, Mohammad Ali has already made a significant mark on the PSL. His consistent performances and economical bowling suggest a bright future ahead. If he continues to impress, he could not only become a mainstay in the Sultans’ attack but also earn a well-deserved call-up to the national team in the near future.
