Veteran England all-rounder Moeen Ali has come out of his Test retirement to join the squad for the five-Test Ashes series beginning on June 16 at Edgbaston.
The 35-year-old had announced his Test retirement after the 2021 tour of India, saying that he âjust felt like I was not in it', having also lost a full contract sometime in 2019.
"We reached out to Mo [Moeen Ali] early this week about returning to Test cricket," Managing Director of England Men's Cricket Rob Key said in a statement on Wednesday.
