    Good for Hassan Ali to find personal love after recurring professional failures. Recommend

    Hassan Ali in 2017 was ranked the number one ODI bowler in the world. He also was the quickest bowler from Pakistan to claim 50 wickets. Then in just 16 months he fell down to number 40 in the ODI ranking!! How does one even do that? How do you go from being #1 to #40 in less than a year and a half? Is that failure of the bowling coach Azhar Mahmood or lack of effort or motivation by Hassan Ali or clueless leadership or lack of it shown at PCB? Recommend
