Hasan Ali (Punjabi and Urdu: حسن علی;[4] born 2 July 1994) is a Pakistani cricketer who plays for the national team in all formats.[5] He made his first-class debut for Sialkot in October 2013.[6] He made his international debut for Pakistan in August 2016 in a One Day International (ODI) match.[7] The following summer, he was named in Pakistan's squad for the 2017 ICC Champions Trophy.[8] Pakistan went on to win the tournament with Ali named player of the tournament after taking thirteen wickets, and took the final wicket of Jasprit Bumrah.[9] He became the quickest bowler for Pakistan to take 50 wickets in ODIs.[10] In August 2018, he was one of thirty-three players to be awarded a central contract for the 2018–19 season by the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB).[11][12]

Early life and career

Hasan Ali was born into a Punjabi Jat family of the Malhi clan to Abdul Aziz Malhi, whom Ali considers a source of inspiration for his life. His hometown is Ladhe Wala Waraich, located in the Gujranwala District.[13] His family encouraged him to play cricket from an early age. Two local cricketers, his elder brother Ata-ur-Rehman (not to be confused with the former international cricketer) and Ansar Zafar Rathore, were his childhood coaches and mentors.[14]

Ali trained at Rathore's Young Combine Star Club in Gujranwala, where other international cricketers have also trained, including Imran Nazir. Ali's coaching began at the age of 10 and, considering his rapid progress and his physical fitness routine (up to eight hours a day everyday in a dedicated gym), by the age of 14 he was selected for the city's U16 side.[15]

In October 2017, against Sri Lanka, Ali became the fastest bowler for Pakistan to take 50 wickets in ODIs in terms of number of matches played.[24][25][26] The same month, he moved to the top of the International Cricket Council's ODI rankings for bowlers, taking 426 days from debut, the third-fastest of all time.[27][28]

In 2017, Ali took the most wickets in ODIs by any bowler, with 45 dismissals[29] and was named the Pakistan Cricket Board's Emerging Player of the Year.[30] He finished 2017 as the top ranked fast bowler in the ICC Player Rankings in ODI cricket.[31] The ICC also named him as the ICC Men's Emerging Cricketer of the Year.[32]

In April 2019, Ali was named in Pakistan's squad for the 2019 Cricket World Cup.[33][34] On 31 May 2019, in Pakistan's opening match of the World Cup, Ali played in his 50th ODI match.[35]
