Pakistani fast bowler Hasan Ali has put his injury issues behind him and is looking to make a comeback to the national team. Hasan had been suffering from persistent injuries since the start of the last year’s Quaid-e-Azam Trophy. The injury aggravated while playing for Peshawar Zalmi earlier this year and he was sidelined for the majority of the year.
It was rumored that Hasan’s back injury was due to his wicket celebration, but Hasan has put an end to those rumors, saying his celebration had nothing to do with his injury. Ever since his comeback in the QeA, he has celebrated the same way.

Hasan Ali was an essential part of the Pakistani line-up until 2019. In the 2017 Champions Trophy, he was named man of the tournament for his exceptional bowling throughout the tournament. He finished as the highest wicket-taker with 13 wickets including 3 in the final against arch-rivals India.
