    What will happen to Hassan Ali in future?

    A lot of setbacks for him in recent times and he hasn't been able to attain the heights he hit in 2017.

    Was that a one-off or will he make a comeback again in future and be an important part of the Pakistan team?

    I'm sure at some point he will return but I don't think he'll ever fulfill his potential which we saw in 2017. He'll just join the long line of average fast bowlers clinging onto selection with a few good moments here and there.


    Arsenal all the way!! (and Pakistan, of course!)

    I think he should work on his batting
    We have seen some gilmpses of his batting
    He can become a good handy bowling allrounder who can avg between 27-29 with ball and in mid 20s with the bat
    I dont see him returning as a front line fast bowler

    He will be back.

    He needs to improve his batting and join as an allrounder, will be hard to come in the team as a solely a bowler with Shaheen, Naseem, Haris Rauf, Musa, Shinwari there

    He started his international career well but I think he has literally fallen away after the CT final. I think we all fell j to the hype. Maybe the CT was just what he could do on good days and the rest of the time he is average .


    Doubt he will get back to that form especially after a back injury.

    Delusions of grandeur combined with a vicious back injury.

    Improbable to come back from that in the surroundings of the world-renowned PCB medical staff.

    Sharma and Dhawan taught him a lesson when his head was in the clouds - a lesson he will never forget.

    A decent bowler who hit a purple patch in 2017 and fooled people over his potential. A bit like how Junaid fooled people in 2012/2013.

    I think his career trajectory will follow a similar path to Junaid. He will be in and out of the team and make several comebacks but will never be able to nail down a permanent spot.

    I donít like Naseem and Hasnain but they have taken up his spot and have pushed Hassan down the pecking order.

    I think Hassan will be like Junaid Khan or Sohail Tanvir. May play once in a while.

    I don't see him being permanent again.

    A poor mans Umer Gul who hit his purple patch in 2017. He is not interested in improving rather he is chilling and dancing in streets

    He has a lot of work to do but PCB should not give up on him - he has something in him - just needs guidance.

    Please don't compare with Umar Gul.
    Umar Gul much much better than Hasan Ali and Junaid Khan.
    Genuine and Handworker.

    Hasan Ali and Junaid Khan are gone case, I don't see any special talent.
    Pakistan have plenty bowling options, no need to worry about them.

    He's too good and too young to not be back. Although his CT form is not sustainable in the modern game by anyone, he can still be a good LOI bowler

    A big challenge for him in the strong competition he's facing now. There at least 6 fast bowlers ahead of him in the pecking order

    If PCB smart they would use him in odis and t20s and not use him in tests

    He had become a caricature of himself. Getting smashed around by top order batsmen, and then still going for his over the top celebration when he would finally dismiss a tailender. It showed what his mentality was. He needs his head straightened out. Should toil away in domestic cricket and earn his place back if he is good enough.

    Should play a complete season in domestics rather than forcing him into the national team when he recovers from the injury.

    He can bounce back, but the focus on cricket needs to return, the guy needs to get his priorities right and most importantly the emphasis on hard work needs to return.

    He can return with the same fire from 2016-17. But he must focus on cricket. He needs to realise he's not a finish product and must put unreal amount work on himself.

    26 years old today - Needs to get his career back on line or will become a footnote in history.

    Hassan Ali stopped working hard. Simple as that. You have to keep working hard or teams will sort you out fast.

    He became ineffective against even the weaker teams.

    But he is a talent. He has shown that. He can come back if he doesn't go the Umar Akmal way.

    I really believed him to be special after the CT, 2017. He has been mostly disappointing since. Still can come back if he gets his head in to the game and works hard.

    Hassan Ali is a prime example of too much fame, too early - he just needs to break out of it and get himself together.
