England All-Rounder Moeen Ali has been called in the England squad for the second test against India. The first test match was drawn due to drain. But the failure of English batsmen was seen on the ground. Only Joe Root showed some notable performance.

While the English coach was talking about considering Moeen Ali in the squad, the news of the inclusion comes. Moeen is a good all-rounder in all formats of the game. His addition not only boosts the batting line-up but there will also be an experienced head as well.

Silverwood praises Moeen Ali

Moeen is in good form in the Hundred tournament. He has scored 189 runs in 6 innings so far. He was also in shape while playing for the Chennai Super Kings in the IPL.

We know he is a fine cricketer and we know he is showing fine form in the Hundred at the moment, though I appreciate it’s a different format,” Silverwood said.

Moeen is certainly under consideration. He’s always been part of our consideration. So that’s something that Joe and I are going to chat about at Lord’s,” ESPNcricinfo quoted Silverwood as saying on Monday.

Moeen may join the team today. The move to bring in the experienced allrounder will allow England to add a fifth bowler in their lineup in the absence of Ben Stokes and also shore up the middle order.

The second test will start on Thursday at the Lord’s stadium.
