Moeen Ali will now switch his attention to the Pakistan Super League after hitting the winning runs for England in the final and deciding T20I against South Africa in Johannesburg.

The Worcestershire CCC all-rounder (five not out) struck a boundary off Andile Phehlukwayo over mid off from the first delivery of the final over as England chased down a 223 target.

It ended a high-scoring series in which Moeen made some telling contributions with bat and ball in England’s 2-1 triumph.

He bowled four overs for 22 runs and a wicket in game one and smashed 39 from just 11 deliveries in game two.

The average run-rate per over during the series was 10.12 – the highest ever for a three match T20I Series.

Now Moeen, the County’s T20 captain, will link up with Multan Sultans for the Pakistan Super League which runs from February 20 to March 22.

He is set to make his first ever appearance in the competition on Friday (February 21) when the Sultans visit Lahore Qalandars.

There are six teams competing in the four-and-a-half week competition with the top four going through to the play-offs.
