Pakistan are currently hosting South Africa for the Test series, where they have already taken the 1-0 lead in the two-match series. The second Test is currently on, and South Africa are trying their level best to avoid the whitewash. The 26-year-old Hasan Ali, who has marked his way back into the Pakistan team with all the style bagged limelight again when he trapped Rassie van der Dussen in a perfect reverse swing.
In the 43.1st over of the 2nd innings, Hasan Ali placed a delivery with a perfect length that curved late and beat the inside edge of van der Dussen. While the batsman was looking to come in action, the damage was already done, and the bowler went on with his perfect celebration. His wicket came as the early breakthrough for Pakistan on the final day of the 2nd Test match.

Hasan Ali making his perfect comeback
Talking about the match, South Africa need 218 runs to grab the match, and they are currently standing at 152/3. Aiden Markram and Temba Bavuma are currently on the crease. Out of the three wickets that South Africa have lost, two have been clinched by Hasan Ali only. Ali is having the perfect outing of his career where he landed amid too much appreciation already when he bagged a five-wicket haul in the first innings of the game.
South Africa would be trying their level best to turn tables in their favour as hosts are looking favourite to seal the series. Ali used to be the lifeline of the Pakistan cricket team in the era of Sarfaraz Ahmed, and his celebration was a thing to watch out for in the field. However, the equation changed in the 2019 World Cup, and he proved to be too costly. He had to miss the action on the international stage since then but was looking for a perfect time to mark his dominance again.
And with the way he is moving up now, it seems he got successful in his mission to mark a stylish comeback.
