Good PerformanceAfter finishing the tournament with 13 wickets Pakistan’s Hasan Ali was rewarded with the golden ball. Ali had an exceptional outing with the ball where he picked his wickets at an average of 14.69 and an economy-rate of 4.29 and deservedly bagged the reward. It was primarily due to his performances in the middle overs that Pakistan reached so far in the tournament. Even before the Champions Trophy, Ali was a consistent performer but it was in this tournament that he had come of age as he has kept on chipping with wickets even while bowling in the middle overs. His brilliant off-cutters along with the deceptive in-swingers helped him outfox the batsman time and again. What he also managed to do was clock speeds of above 135kmph consistently and this is why he achieved so much success as batsmen found it difficult to gauge the deliveries. What he also has up his arsenal were some highly deceptive slower deliveries which added to his success. After picking up three wickets in the semi-final against England, Ali was once more at this best against India in the all-important finals where he picked up three wickets for just 19 runs. In his spell of six overs, Ali bowled with precision and pace which troubled the Indian batsmen. His most important victim was MS Dhoni who he dismissed with the short ball. Meanwhile, Hasan Ali was elected unanimously as the Player of the Tournament by a five-member panel featuring Geoff Allardice, Michael Atherton, Sourav Ganguly, Ramiz Raja and Lawrence Booth and Julian Guyer.
Champions Trophy Good Winning RoleLONDON: Pakistan paceman Hasan Ali hopes the Champions Trophy final with arch-rivals India will see him continue to live the dream he had before the competition started. The 23-year-old has been central to Pakistan's progress since a woeful 124-run defeat by India in their tournament opener at Edgbaston on June 4 and heads into Sunday's final at the Oval as the 2017 edition's leading wicket-taker with 10 at an average of just 17.20 apiece. Given that Bhuvneshwar Kumar, India's most successful bowler, has taken six wickets so far, it will take something special to stop Hasan from finishing as the leading wicket-taker in a tournament featuring the world's top eight one-day international sides. Hasan's achievement is all the more impressive given he only made his ODI debut in August last year. "It's like a dream," Hasan said on Friday. "I set a goal for myself during the West Indies series (in Guyana in April) and it was to become the best bowler in the Champions Trophy. "I want to achieve that goal," added Hasan, whose 20 career ODIs have yielded a haul of 39 wickets at an average of 23.92 - impressive figures in a form of the game where, with fielding restrictions and increasingly short boundaries, the odds are often all in favour of batsmen making big scores. "Now when I knew that the best bowler will get a 'golden ball', I am determined to get that souvenir as it will be my first in my career." Hasan's impressive array of skills were on show during Pakistan's dominant eight-wicket semi-final win in Cardiff on Wednesday against an England side previously unbeaten in the tournament. Unafraid to go round the wicket, Hasan took three for 35 - all top-order wickets - against a powerful batting line-up as England slumped to 211 all out. The pick of his dismissals was when Ben Stokes, fresh from his ODI best 102 not out in Australia in the group stage, was completely deceived by a slower ball that landed on a near yorker length and spooned a catch to mid-off. Hasan paid tribute to the influence of Pakistan bowling coach Azhar Mahmood, himself a vastly experienced former international seam-bowling all-rounder who also spent several seasons in English county cricket, notably with Oval-based Surrey. "I will give the credit for my improvement to Azhar Mahmood, who has been working very hard with us bowlers," said Hasan, adding: "I have the much needed rhythm, so I will do my best to continue that." Pakistan's resurgence since their opening defeat by India has been something to see even allowing for their reputation as world cricket's most "unpredictable" team and Hasan insisted the pressure of playing India, the title-holders, in a final would not cause his side to retreat back into their shells. "I am very positive about the final," said Hasan, who took one for 70 when the teams net in the group phase."The mistakes we committed in the first game will not be repeated and we will try to execute the plans given by coaches," he added. Hasan's exuberant celebration when he takes a wicket, with the bowler leaping high in the air, with arms and legs then going out at different angles, has become one of the signature sights of this Champions Trophy.
The Hero“It’s the love of the people that they are likening my celebration with starting a generator,” said Hasan in an exclusive interview with Roznama Express. “But I will clarify here that my celebration is actually a bomb that gets blasted after I take a wicket.”Hasan’s mercurial rise has left many perplexed, including himself as he admits he never really thought he would emerge as the player of the tournament. “No I hadn’t planned it precisely, but it was sort of a dream and a long-term goal of mine to star in an International Cricket Council (ICC) event like Wasim Akram did,” he said.
Bowling Record of Hasan AliHasan Ali — current number one bowler in ODIs — is continuing his fantastic year in the Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) as he took five wickets on Monday for just 20 runs. The Pakistani pacer has managed to make a superb start to his BPL career by bowling out five batsmen in just 3.3 overs. Hasan’s splendid performance put his side, the Comilla Victorians, in a commanding position against the Dhaka Dynamites. Hasan Ali becomes just the second bowler in T20 history to dismiss 5 batsmen BOWLED in a match.
