Moeen Ali statement in the video :
In a video shared by CSK, Moeen praised Devon Conway for his purple cap in the last match.
“Yeah, obviously marriage is working for him and he is doing well ever since. Look, he is somebody who gets a lot of runs, he is a run-getter, and he and Rutu (Ruturaj Gaikwad) have started getting partnerships which we need, which we needed obviously after Faf (Du Plessis) leaving or going. It’s great going forward and he’s a brilliant player, he’s got great shots. It’s been really well and I’m really happy for him,” Moeen said in a video.
Moeen Hails Dhoni’s leadership:
Moeen Ali took three-wicket against the DC restricting to score more runs. He also hailed Dhoni for his amazing leadership roles and their discussion about bowlers and the match.
“It’s a great opportunity for me because obviously he’s coming in and I try and pick up a lot of things as a captain when I go back home.
So we chat about what type of bowlers we have and all that and then bowling obviously for him is to tell me what wicket it is and how to bowl and stuff so he as everybody knows he is amazing so I try and pick his brain as much as I can,” said Moeen Ali
