Pakistan fast bowler Hasan Ali said that he wishes to take part in the Indian Premier League (IPL) if opportunity presents itself. Back in 2008, the likes of Shoaib Akhtar, Mohammad Hafeez, Salman Butt, Kamran Akmal, Sohail Tanvir and many others plied their trade in the tournament.

But due to political tensions between the two countries, Pakistani players were banned from taking part since 2009. Hasan Ali, who recently played in World Cup 2023 on Indian soil, hailed IPL as ‘one of the biggest leagues’ in the world.

"Every player wants to play IPL and it is my wish to play there. It is one of the biggest leagues in the world and I will definitely play there if there is an opportunity in the future," Hasan Ali was quoted as saying in an interview with Samaa


Hasan Ali had a reasonable outing in the World Cup where he picked up nine wickets from six matches at an average of 6.29 with a four-wicket haul to show for his efforts.

Hasan made a comeback to ODIs in the World Cup after Naseem Shah sustained an ankle injury in the Asia Cup 2023 Super Four match against India in Colombo.

Hasan Ali has been successful in the Pakistan Super League (PSL) while playing for the Peshawar Zalmi followed by the Islamabad United.

He is currently second in the list of most wickets in the history of the PSL after Wahab Riaz. Having picked up 94 wickets from 72 matches, Hasan is also six wickets short of becoming only the second bowler with 100 or more scalps in the history of the PSL.
