Moeen Ali has labelled the cricket schedule “horrible” with England’s T20 World Cup celebrations cut short by the upcoming ODI series against Australia.
Only 72 hours will have passed since England’s World Cup triumph when the Poms suit up once more to play Australia on Thursday in the first of three ODI games.
Speaking ahead of the series, Ali told reporters that the scheduling is “horrible” and said it was becoming increasingly “difficult” to maintain the same intensity for every game.

“It’s been happening for a while,” said Ali.
“Having a game in three days’ time, it’s horrible. As a group we want to enjoy and celebrate and have that [time], because we put so much into it.
