On Friday, England all-rounder Moeen Ali didn’t have a day to remember during the 1st T20I match against India at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad. During the game, Moeen Ali warmed the bench as his teammates defeated the Indian cricket team.
England proved why they are hailed as the world’s number 1 T20I side by dominating the game from the word go to take a lead in the ongoing five-match T20I series. The heroes of the game turned out to be the bowling attack of the England cricket team which was led by Jofra Archer. After restricting team India for just 124 runs, the England batsmen came out all guns blazing to allow the visitors to chase down the target with 8 wickets to spare.

Talking about Moeen Ali, if only warming the bench wasn’t enough, Moeen Ali had another reason to feel bad for himself. The all-rounder was hilariously ignored by Jofra and the moment was caught on the camera.
The awkward moment took place after the game ended and England cricketers were congratulating each other. This is the moment when Moeen Ali extended his arms for a hand-shake, however, was ignored by Archer, who headed to shake hands with Adil Rashid.
The all-rounder thought that Jofra Archer would be shaking hands with him however the latter went on to shake hands with Rashid and hug him, leaving Moeen Ali completely blanked. Moeen Ali, who was standing beside Rashid, had his palm out in anticipation for a long time but Archer completely ignored him although unintentionally.
The video of the incident has been going viral on social media. Here, check out the video:
