Ali Khan is a Pakistan-origin American cricketer who rose to prominence because of his exceptional performances in domestic leagues across the world. He possesses pace and raw strength and can consistently bowl above the 140kph mark.During his childhood in Pakistan, Ali Khan used to play cricket with his elder brother at home. When there would be no one to play with, Khan used to bowl against the wall. As a kid, he only wanted to bowl fast.He used to idolise legendary fast bowlers like Shoaib Akhtar, Wasim Akram, Waqar Younis, and Brett Lee. Ali Khan with Wasim Akram.While he was in his early adolescence, one day his elder brother took him to play a tape-ball cricket match. In that match, he took six wickets playing against boys older than him. It was then that he realised his potential as a fast-bowler. Like almost every other Pakistani cricketer, Ali Khan grew up playing tape-ball cricket in Pakistan.In 2010, Ali Khan was 19 years old when he along with his family moved to the USA. Back then, he had given up the idea of pursuing cricket as a career as he never thought there would be cricket in America. But destiny had other ideas in the store for him. One day, his uncle took him along to play in a local club match in Dayton, Ohio, where Alis sheer pace and accuracy left everyone awestruck. That game made Ali re-emerge as a cricketer.Ali played in the local club matches in his first few years in the USA while simultaneously working at a cellular company.He got a big break in September 2015 after he was named in the ICC Americas 15-member squad (a combined team from the various nations in America) to play in the NAGICO Regional Super50 tournament in West Indies. Eventually, in January 2016, he made his List A debut playing for ICC Americas team against Jamaica. He was the only member in his squad who had earlier not represented his national team.Impressed by his solid performances with the ball, Guyana Amazon Warriors signed him to play in the Caribbean Premier League (CPL) 2016. He dismissed Kumar Sangakkara on the very first ball that he bowled on his CPL debut.Ali Khans lean physique has at times found it difficult to cope with the strain of fast bowling, illness and injuries have troubled him a few times. In 2017, his CPL 2017 contract with the Guyana Amazon Warriors was terminated because of a hamstring injury. He was looked upon by the franchises as an injury-prone fast bowler.With doubts raised about his fitness, Ali made a strong comeback in 2018 when he took part in the 2018 US Open T20 tournament in Florida. Dwayne Bravo who was playing in the same team was impressed with his bowling ability and suggested his name to the Winnipeg Hawks for the 2018 Global T20 Canada. The same year he also made a comeback in CPL after he was signed by Shahrukh Khans team, Trinbago Knight Riders. Ali Khan with Shah Rukh Khan at a TKR team dinner party.
