England all-rounder Moeen Ali has heaped praise on former Pakistani and England coach Saqlain Mushtaq for his coaching style.

Saqlain, the inventor of "dusra", was appointed as the England cricket team's spin consultant in 2016 for the home series against Pakistan.

Talking to BT Sports, Ali praised Mushtaq and said: "He was outstanding, I think. His vision of coaching was brilliant. He also has a philosophy, and he had his own way of coaching. For example, an English coach would tell me, pull my arm down quicker, but he would tell me differently. And, I prefer that type of coaching."

"For me, he's the best coach I have ever had," he added.

Saqlain served as Pakistan cricket team's interim head coach during the T20 World Cup 2021, Bangladesh, and the West Indies series held recently.
