The coach of the England Cricket Trevor Bayliss has said that the all-rounder Moeen Ali is improving with time and he is happy with the off-spinner's performance in the four match Test Series against South Africa in which he picked up 10 wickets.
Moeen Ali was asked to open the batting in the series against Pakistan but he failed there, whereas in series against South Africa he was used as bowling all-rounder and batted at No.8 position. Moeen had one fifty plus score of 61 as he scored 116 runs.
The left-handed batsman played 7 innings and remained not out in 3 of them so he had an average of 29. But he also picked up 4 wickets in one innings and was named man of the match. But he could not do much with ball in next three test matches.
Bayliss said that sometimes Moeen lacks the consistency and they will have to work on it. He said that due to his inconsistency the batsmen get easy chances to get settled or to get off-strike, which is not good for a bowler but he realises that and is improving.
Moeen Ali had an average of 48.5 with the ball but Bayliss feels that most of the world class spinners come to their best when they are around 30 so they will have to be patient and wait for Moeen Ali to get a little more mature and help them in winning matches.
