Profile

Abid Ali is a right-handed opening batsman of Pakistan who first played his List A game in 2005 when he debuted for Lahore Eagles against Multan Tigers. Two years later, he got a chance to debut in First Class cricket as well representing Lahore Ravi in the 2007 Quaid-e-Azam Trophy.


Ali had a pretty decent career but he captured imaginations in the 2017-18 Quaid-e-Azam Trophy where he became the leading run-scorer for Islamabad. The main highlight of his domestic career came in February 2018 when he scored unbeaten 209 in 156 balls against Peshawar in the National One-Day Cup. This was then the highest List A score by any Pakistan batsman as he became only the fourth batter to score a double hundred in this format.


It was his 10-year long struggle which finally got him the national cap and by the time he made his international debut, he already had the experience of playing more than 100 First Class matches and a little over 90 List A games.


Abid started his international career with a bang, scoring a century on debut. Although his individual score of 112 came in a losing cause against Australia, he made it into record books by becoming the 16th batsman and third Pakistani to score an ODI century on debut. His promise earned him the ticket for the 2019 Cricket World Cup in England.
