A vital cog in England's wheel across formats, Moeen Ali is known for his ability to clear the fence not by brute force but by timing the ball sweetly. Being a world-class off-spinner, he has often left batters of the calibre of Virat Kohli stunned with his skill and smarts. Moeen celebrates his birthday today, 18 June.

The English cricketer made his debut in Indian Premier League four years ago and his all-round abilities have made him one of the most prominent all-rounders in the domestic T20 tournament. He has so far represented Royal Challengers Bangalore and Chennai Super Kings and amassed 910 runs in the cash-rich league along with five half centuries.
