Moeen Ali happy to be doing alright for England

London: England all-rounder Moeen Ali has revealed that he would be happy doing alright for England even if he does not get the chance to play for his county club Worcestershire.

Ali said that he would be gutted if he does not get the chance to play for newly promoted Worcestershire in 2015, but added that he would also be happy because it means that he is doing alright for England.

Ali was awarded a central contract after a successful start to his Test career and helped his county beat Surrey to earn their place in Division One next summer, The BBC reported.

Ali's excellent international summer included his maiden Test century in the series against Sri Lanka, before he starred with the ball in England's 3-1 series win over India. In his first appearance in the one-day series with India, he struck a quick-fire 67 in England's defeat at Edgbaston.

The all-rounder's exploits earned him his contract with the England and Wales Cricket Board but the deal will limit his availability for domestic cricket. He said that he loves playing forWorcestershire.

Ali also said that since the day he got to his domestic club, it has always been homely, so he added that he would see what happens, as it's a long time away now and he has got a busy winter hopefully.
