    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 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.

    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.

    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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Karachi: Pacer Hasan Ali is likely to get fit ahead of the Quaid-e-Azam Trophy 2020-21 which is scheduled to start from September 25, reports suggested.

    However, the 26-year-old will not be available for selection in the upcoming home series against Zimbabwe as he has not played international cricket for more than a year now.

    Hasan had been picking injuries after the ICC 2019 World Cup in England. He had suffered a back injury during the initial round of the Quaid-e-Azam Trophy 2019.

    He came back in the final round of the tournament but suffered a rib fracture in November, ruling him out for six months. He played Pakistan Super League (PSL) season five but suffered another injury setback in May 2020.

    It must be noted that Hasan is included Central Punjab’s squad for upcoming domestic season.

    Agree with this. He needs to develop into a batting all-rounder and play as a later middle order hitter. Pakistan needs this in ODIs and I can see him doing the job in T20Is as well if he works on his game.

    Bowling isn't his forte anymore.

    He needs to stop playing all sorts of T20s for a year and put full focus on getting fitness back, work on his lost skills of putting a ball on right spot in right shape and may be work on his batting - he has good potential to out bat Faheem Ashraf. At his physical capacity (height) and bowling pace, heíll never become a tearaway fast bowler, neither the new ball starter - his best chance is to become the 3rd/4th seemer to do the work horse job and contribute with bat. In Asia, if PAK is to play 2.5 spinners on some turners, he can be a very good asset as 2nd pacer, who can bat a bit.

    PCB/His FC team can help him in this regard - apart from facilitating more net times, he should be promoted to higher batting slot, may be at 7, if not 6! for domestic FC games and force him to think his batting like a batsman - itíll work. His bowling skills are lost simply because of too much focus on T20s, which destroys the fundamentals of any bowler of any type. He has to regain that from FC games and working with qualified coaches. Fitness is a prerequisite condition, no compromise there - and, he can gain that by bowling long hours in match conditions, at least 19-20 overs per match day, if not 23-24.

    But was he injured from playing t20 cricket or the longer format the management have to take responsibility and manage players workload.

    He was injured for his body not being able to cope with the stress of Test cricket - he became Test regular in later stages of career and got injured. Also, I believe he kept playing T20 cricket hiding injuries - itís Mickey Mouse game where you need to be active for four overs, but it doesnít allow proper rehabilitations- eventually youíll break down.

    Management canít take responsibility of PAK internationals running to play Hong Kong super six, bowling on AstroTurfs and risking your ankle, groin & ligaments. Players themselves have to draw their own boundaries for the sake of own career.

    Good, Pak will atleast have bit more experience available if he gets his form and rhythm right especially in tests. Also will provide good batting depth and options for LOIs.

    Hopefully he has worked a bit in his batting during this time, not sure if Pak players usually do those kind of things in off season or rehabs. Pat Cummins is a really good example of someone who was not half the batsman he is today as he worked on his batting during the time out with back injury.

    Were has he bowled on astro turfs.mabagement need to know which bowlers are required for each format for example not over bowling bowlers hence the reason why players retire from test before any other format

    I've seen that insinuation thrown around quite often for Hassan Ali. Do we have any evidence to back that up or is just based on the fact that he is not as reserved as some of our other cricketers and does what he does off the field more openly than most Pakistani cricketers?

    Obviously I don't know him personally so my observations are based upon his social media footprint.

    I will be gladly proven wrong but to me that proof will be in his ability to make a comeback and win games for Pakistan.

    Definitely not trying to prove you wrong or anything, I just feel like quite a few posters here have been quick to jump to that conclusion, when in reality, they have no evidence to back it up other than going by his social media activities.

    I think we've just gotten used to cricketers with minimal to no personality and often mistake that for maturity/hard work. Hassan, for all we know, might be one of the most hard working guy in the Pakistan team whose just had rotten luck with injuries in the past couple years!

    Maybe I am just biased in favor of cricketers that express themselves and have a bit of character! Our team, these days, is just filled with timid and uninspiring individuals.

    Hopefully he has worked a bit in his batting during this time, not sure if Pak players usually do those kind of things in off season or rehabs. Pat Cummins is a really good example of someone who was not half the batsman he is today as he worked on his batting during the time out with back injury.
    I am sure he has. Not much else he could have been doing and I distinctly remember seeing a clip of him with Shadab and saying something along the lines of ďagar ye batsman ban sakta hai tou mai bhi ban sakta hunĒ (if he can become a batsman, so can I). Talent is definitely there, what I would like most is to see him work with a coach like Gio Collusi or even just take good tips from Hashim Amla and Younis Khan at Zalmi to improve things like balance, head position, and 1-2 basic shots. Obviously should work with YK through the national team as well.
