Hasan Ali - A star in the making. That's the tag he has earned with his ability to surprise batters with his pace and deceive them with subtle variations. Although his career is still in its early stages, Hasan has already received accolades from cricket experts worldwide.

Hasan made his first-class debut in 2013, immediately catching the attention of national selectors. His on-field attitude is impressive as he embodies a never-say-die spirit. The pacer from Punjab has made a significant mark on the international stage, particularly during the 2017 ICC Champions Trophy.

The tournament didn't start well for Hasan and his team, as he had a forgettable outing against India in the opener. However, he maintained faith in his abilities and staged a remarkable comeback, stunning the cricketing world. For his exceptional efforts, he was named Player of the Tournament, instrumental in securing Pakistan's first Champions Trophy title. His consistent performances with the ball throughout the year earned him the top spot in the ICC ODI rankings for bowlers in October 2017, just 17 months after his debut.

In his short career, Hasan Ali has achieved remarkable feats. In his first 30 ODIs, he picked up three five-wicket hauls and a four-wicket haul. His best overseas performance came in Sydney, where he claimed a five-wicket haul, including the scalps of David Warner, Steven Smith, and Glenn Maxwell. After proving his prowess in limited-overs cricket, Hasan is eager to leave his mark in Test cricket.

In the 2019 Pakistan Super League, Hasan excelled, taking 25 wickets for Peshawar Zalmi, the most in the season, leading them to a runner-up finish. However, since his heroics in the 2017 Champions Trophy, Hasan has struggled to replicate his success and secure a regular spot in the national team. An injury to Naseem Shah led to Hasan's inclusion in the 2023 World Cup squad, despite not playing ODIs for Pakistan since June 2022. Hasan struggled in the tournament, taking only 9 wickets in 6 games, with four coming in a single match against Sri Lanka.

Despite a forgettable 2024 PSL season for his franchise, Karachi Kings, where they finished second from the bottom, Hasan ended as their highest wicket-taker. His PSL performances earned him a spot in the T20I series against Ireland. However, he went wicketless in the series decider and was expensive, which hasn't helped his chances of being selected for the T20 World Cup. Nonetheless, Hasan still has the upcoming series against England to prove his worth and secure a place on the plane to the West Indies and the USA for the T20 World Cup.
