Patel said that one positive in Moeen’s favor is that he will be available for the entire IPL 2023 as he does not play Tests. So he will not have to go for the Ashes series. However, Moeen Ali is the type of player who does not play Test matches and captains England when Jos Buttler is injured or unavailable, Patel said. So, he can be a short-term option, as CSK and Mumbai always look for long-term options.
Parthiv said he has the experience of playing alongside Moeen at Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) and feels the England player has leadership qualities. The former India wicket-keeper said that CSK will have to bring new energy to the home ground and focus on positive energy.
