England Test captain Joe Root has said that Moeen Ali’s retirement from Test cricket is a big loss for the team due to various reasons. Moin announced his retirement from Test cricket on Monday. Moeen, who made his Test debut in 2014, has scored 2914 runs in 64 Tests for England. Root has said that ‘Moeen’s career itself shows what he has achieved. He has done very well in Test cricket. They are said to be one of the great sages who played together. I really enjoyed sharing the dressing room with him. We have so many wonderful memories off the field.
He has also said that ‘when I resign from the post of captain, there are many things on which I will look back. One thing I would say is that Moin has presented himself very well. The special moment he has on the cricket field in the Test match format is extraordinary. I am definitely going to miss a lot of amazing things that are absolutely amazing. Of course, there were times when we could have done things a little differently.
Continuing, Root said, “I spoke to him last week. But his retirement is a big problem for the team for various reasons. But I wish him the best of luck for his entire career. I hope that many more crickets still remain.” There are those who are left. I can play with them in ODIs.
