Moin Ali is an important part of the England team and he has also captained the team on some occasions. This all-rounder has said a lot about his ODI career.
Moeen Ali hints at retirement from ODIs.
New Delhi: Moeen Ali is an important part of the England cricket team. This player has been making important contributions to the team with his batting and his off-spin. Last year, England had captured the T20 World Cup and Moin Ali was a part of this team. England had also won the World Cup in ODIs before T20. Now this team will try to defend its title in the 50-over World Cup to be held in India this year, but Moin Ali may not be with the team after this. This is because Moeen Ali has indicated retirement from this format after the ODI World Cup.
The England team is currently on a tour of Bangladesh. The world champion has faced a bad defeat on this tour. Bangladesh defeated England 3–0 in the three-match T20 series. Even before this match, Moin Ali talked about his ODI career, which felt that this player might retire from ODIs after the World Cup.

’50-over game has become difficult’
Talking to talksport2 before the third T20 match against Bangladesh, he said that ODI cricket is becoming very difficult with increasing age and he will see after the ODI World Cup whether he plays further or not. He said, “I don’t set goals for myself, but I want to play the World Cup. I want to be a part of the World Cup. Hope we win the World Cup and see after that.”
He said, “I did not say that I will retire. I am also not saying that I will not retire. At the age of 35, the next seven-eight months are enough. This may be the time when the thought comes in my mind that my work is done. I look at Liam Livingston and Will Jacks, and think my time is up. I can prepare these players for the next World Cup.”

will play franchise cricket
However, Moin Ali has made it clear that even if he retires from ODIs, he will continue to play franchise cricket. Moeen Ali plays for the Chennai Super Kings captained by Mahendra Singh Dhoni in the IPL. He also said that it is getting difficult to play ODI cricket with age. He said, “I think it is quite logical. If I am playing well and play all kinds of franchise cricket and play for England then why not. The 50-over game becomes difficult when you get older.
