Pakistan pace bowling all-rounder Hasan Ali is all set to make a grand comeback to the national setup after experiencing a stellar QeA Trophy season for his side Central Punjab.

The Men in Green are preparing for the home series against the Proteas that starts on the 26th of January whereas Hasan has had a fantastic domestic season to back up his selection for the tour.

Ali's inclusion is also mandatory after the inexperienced pace attack of Pakistan failed miserably on their recent tour of New Zealand. The management will certainly look to strengthen the pace attack that hasn't been up to the mark in recent tours.

Hasan is hoping to return to the national team after a brilliant domestic season and he feels that the ball is in the court of the selection committee.

“I didn't watch the New Zealand games, but followed them. Performances obviously weren't great and it gets you down. But I'm looking forward to hopefully returning to all formats with the national team. It's up to the selection committee and team management if they think I can be a part of the team.” Hasan told ESPNcricinfo

The talented paceman last played for Pakistan in the World Cup clash against India in 2019 where he conceded 84 runs in his 9 overs. There were a few injury concerns as well but now Hasan has made a grand comeback by bowling more than 250 overs during the recently concluded QeA Trophy season.

“When you're out, you have to show your fitness and performances. What was in my control - my fitness - I showed by bowling 260 overs [in the season], 43 wickets, runs too, played nine back-to-back four-day games, that too in Karachi with tough conditions for bowlers. I think there isn't anything lacking in my case, the ball is in the selection committee's court.” Ali said.
