Moeen Ali, a player of the England Cricket Team, on the 20th of September, announced a break from Test Cricket.
Ashley Giles, the Managing Director of the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB,) confirmed the news and said, “He just wants a little bit of a break from Test cricket. I think for all the guys, not just talking about Moeen, it’s been a really challenging summer.”
All rounder Moeen Ali played several matches and was also a part of the International Cricket Council (ICC) World Cup 2019, which was hosted by England.
Ashley supported the decision of Moeen Ali and said, “A World Cup and an Ashes back to back have had a massive effect on many of these guys, psychologically as much as physically. Some of those guys are still carrying that. His experience in the first Test wasn’t a great one but that’s cricket.”
Moeen Ali will continue to play other formats of cricket such as One Day Internationals (ODIs) and T20 Internationals (T20Is.)
