Moeen Ali, set to bat at number three for England in the upcoming fourth Ashes Test at Old Trafford, is on a quest to locate the fan who aided in healing his cut finger, which had been impeding his bowling performance at the start of the Ashes series.

During the weekend, Moeen, aged 36, revealed that an NHS worker had sent him a honey-based gel that effectively treated the wound.

Expressing his desire to express gratitude, Moeen shared, “I can’t recall who it was. If the lady sees this, please reach out because I genuinely want to write back and say thank you.”

Moeen made a comeback to Test cricket for this series after England’s primary spinner, Jack Leach, suffered a back stress fracture. In the opening Test at Edgbaston, Moeen’s injured spinning finger limited his bowling capabilities on the final day, resulting in England’s defeat by two wickets.

He was excluded from the second Test at Lord’s but made a noteworthy contribution to the team’s victory in the third Test at Headingley.

“After the Edgbaston Test, I received a letter from a woman stating that her husband is a huge fan of mine,” Moeen explained. “While they were watching the match, they noticed the gash on my finger and believed that Medihoney would aid in my recovery. I tried it, and it swiftly healed my finger.”

Moeen expressed amazement at receiving such a letter and expressed his disappointment at misplacing it, saying, “I placed the letter on my table at home, thinking that I would respond after the series, but now I can’t locate it.”

Confident before the fourth Ashes Test, Moeen’s return to the England team entails batting at number three at Old Trafford. With Ollie Pope, the regular number three, injured, England had Harry Brook occupy the position during the first innings at Headingley.

During the second innings, Moeen volunteered to move up to number three, allowing Brook to return to his usual number five, where he scored an instrumental 75 runs, contributing to the team’s victory.

Reflecting on his decision, Moeen said, “After observing our performance in the first innings at Headingley, I felt it would be better for the team if Brooky batted at five and Jonny Bairstow at seven. So, I thought, ‘Why not?’ I have previously batted at number three. It’s no longer about me, my averages, or anything like that. I have always been a player who does what is best for the team.”

Moeen also mentioned that it is likely his Test comeback will only extend for this series and that he won’t be tempted to participate in the tour of India early next year.

If Old Trafford and the final match at The Oval serve as Moeen’s last two Tests, he aims to conclude his Test career with two victories, granting England a 3-2 series triumph and their first Ashes victory since 2015.

Moeen expressed his enthusiasm, stating, “It would be incredible. I returned to try and win the Ashes. My career has always unfolded unexpectedly and for a reason. I never anticipated being in this position. This was my month off, my first break in ages, and I was looking forward to it. But this opportunity will never come again. I couldn’t refuse it. Suddenly, I find myself playing in one of the most significant series since 2005. I’ve cherished every moment of it.”
