The English all-rounder Moeen Ali feels he still has “match-winning performance” in him and has set “small goals” he wants to achieve in the upcoming series against India. “I still feel like I have wickets and runs in me and match-winning performances in me. I have small goals that I want to achieve first. I’m not far from getting 200 wickets. I know people say that They don’t. Look at these things, but it would be something I would look at. Then after that I would set another goal, “quoted ESPN Cricinfo Moeen, who has 181 Test wickets.
Virat Kohli, who played just one test of the four-game series against Australia before returning to India for the birth of his first child, will be back in the lead. Moeen said it will be difficult for them to get Kohli out as the latter has no “weakness”.
“How do we get him out? He’s clearly a great player, world class, he’s very motivated to do well and I’m sure he will be even more motivated after they did well in Australia and he had to leave for the birth of his child I don’t know how we’ll get him out [specifically] because I don’t think he has any weaknesses, but we have a good bowling attack, some pace in the lineup. He’s a great guy and a good friend of mine – we don’t talk too much about cricket. We’re doing a little bit, but not too much, ”he said.
Moeen had missed the English test series against Sri Lanka after testing positive for the corona virus. Dom Bess and Jack Leach performed brilliantly for England when the team won both tests.
“I think I am okay. Whether or not I get picked is another matter. Bessy and Leachy did quite well in Sri Lanka and put in a good performance. In terms of being ready to play, I think I will.” “It’s okay to play, I’ll be ready. I’ve waited long enough,” said Moeen.
England’s touring contingent arrived in Chennai on Wednesday and all members except Ben Stokes, Jofra Archer and Rory Burns are under quarantine. Stokes, Archer and Burns, who arrived in India earlier than the rest of the team, started training on Saturday. The first test between England and India starts on February 5.
