Due to his poor performance in the last four Test matches he played against Australia and Sri Lanka, Ali was dropped from the Test squad by the selection committee, which was led by Muhammad Wasim.
The right-arm pacer stated, “I will work hard in the current domestic season and win my position back in the national squad.”
In addition to 91 and 60 wickets in ODIs and T20Is, the speedster has claimed 77 wickets in 21 Test matches.
The 28-year-old also expressed his congratulations to the athletes chosen for the eagerly awaited home series versus England.
The much awaited tour will see the England squad embark in Pakistan on November 27. The first Test is scheduled to start on December 1 in Rawalpindi.
There have been 12 previous matches at Rawalpindi, with the home team winning five and losing three. This will be England’s first Test match there.
On Friday, December 9, the second Test will be played in Multan, and on Saturday, December 17, the tour’s final Test will be played in Karachi at the National Stadium.
Strong first-class performances have earned mystery spinner Abrar Ahmed and fast bowler Mohammad Ali their first-ever Test calls-ups.
Hasan Ali, a pacer, and Yasir Shah, a leg spinner, have both been let go from the team.
