Ali who runs a cricket institute in Pakistan saidhis visits abroad give him a chance of learning the new methods of coaching.

The trainees bowled a few bouncers to Ali with their questions which he handled with relative ease.

He signed off giving some valuable advice, “There will never be another Sachin or Miandad. You may be better than them or worse than them, but never them. So create your own identity and rise to the top.”
