England all-rounder Moeen Ali has announced his retirement from the game's longest format. According to cricket fans, Moeen Ali is, without a doubt, England's best spinner over the ages.

The idea of spending time away from his family for the ongoing IPL, T20 World Cup, and The Ashes is thought to have influenced his choice. Ali's contribution was quite crucial to England's chances of winning the India test series. However, India won the series 3-1 and qualified for the ICC Test Championship.
