“Test cricket is incredible; when you’re having a fantastic day, it’s way superior to any other format; it’s more gratifying, and you feel like you’ve earned it.

“I’ll miss simply stepping out there with the boys, playing against the greatest in the world with that nervous feeling, but also knowing that with my best ball, I could get anyone out.”

“I’ve liked Test Cricket, but the intensity can be too much at times,” he said. “I feel like I’ve done enough of it, and I’m satisfied and comfortable with how I’ve done.”

Moeen Ali expressed gratitude to his coaches, captains, and entire family for their support during his Test career.

“I’d want to thank my instructors, Peter Moores and Chris Silverwood, as well as Peter for giving me my debut. Cookie and Rooty are the captains I’ve liked playing for, and I hope they’re pleased with how I performed “He stated.

“My parents are my number one supporters; I don’t think I would have made it without their help; every game I played was for them, and I know they are incredibly proud of me.

“My brothers and sister have always been the first to lift me up on difficult days, as have my wife and children. I am grateful for my wife’s sacrifices and tolerance. They’ve all been great throughout my journey; everything I’ve done has been for them.”
