Moeen Ali speaks after having a good time in the tour game against Sri Lanka A. England are in Sri Lanka to play seven One-Day Internationals (ODIs). Moeen took wickets with his off-spin. After that, he smashed 56 off 37 balls. Moeen says that he is quite happy with his performance and is trying to play the role the team has given him. He not only has to get the runs, but his off-spin is also a very good addition to the team. In the lead-up to the practice game against Sri Lanka A, it was announced that Moeen will open the batting in place of Alex Hales. This allows him the chance to play an important role in the team and he would want to cement his spot ahead of the ICC World Cup 2015.
