Moeen Ali had withdrawn her retirement just because of the Ashes, she said, “If Stokes’s message comes now…”

The Ashes 2023 test series ended with the England team winning the final test by a resounding 49 runs. The Australian team won the first 2 matches of this test series, while the England team managed to win the third and fifth tests. After the end of the last Test of the series played at the Oval, 2 England team players announced their retirement. It includes the name of fast pitcher Stuart Broad. On the other hand, the other name is that of the multi-talented Moin Ali, who returned from his Test retirement just for this series.

Moin Ali had announced his retirement from the Test format in 2021, but before the start of Ashes 2023, Captain Ben Stokes messaged him about his return. Moin had decided to return after obeying his captain. He has now again withdrawn from Test and said that if Stokes messages him again about his return, he will remove him.

After the end of the Oval Test match, Moin Ali said again about the decision to withdraw from the Test that it was wonderful. He felt great to be back. When I got the message from Stokes, I was shocked at the time because I didn’t know Leach was injured. I knew that mentally it would not be easy, but more than that it was physically difficult for me. It was a great series, which I will never forget.

In his statement, Moin Ali further said that I have also batted at the number 3 position before. So it was good enough for me. My job is done, now if Stokes messages me about coming back I’ll delete him. I had a great time, but I know that’s it for me.

During this, Moin Ali also talked about the capture of Steve Smith which is being viewed from a controversy point of view. Moin said that as soon as I saw the catch go into Stokes’ hands, I felt he was out, but when I saw him go down, he surprised me. I thought at the time that I would never be able to get Steve Smith out again. Those things keep happening to you at Test Cricket.
