BBC Sport - Moeen Ali: Worcestershire all-rounder on his England Test call
England Test call delights Moeen
- From the section Cricket
Worcestershire all-rounder Moeen Ali talks to BBC Hereford and Worcester about his first call-up to the England Test squad.
If selected to face Sri Lanka at Lord's on Thursday, Moeen would emulate cousin Kabir Ali, who made his only Test appearance for England 11 years ago.
Kabir took five wickets in the fourth Test against South Africa at Headingley in 2003, but only Jimmy Anderson remains from that England team.
If Moeen makes the final XI, he would be the first Worcestershire player to appear in a Test since fellow spinner Gareth Batty won the last of his seven caps in June 2005.
