WORCESTERSHIRE CCC's Moeen Ali has been recognised by the ICC for his performance in this year's T20 World Cup.

The all-rounder was named in the 'Upstox Most Valuable Team of the Tournament' after his performances.

England enjoyed a successful campaign until they were beaten in the dramatic semi-final against New Zealand, in which Ali scored 51 not-out with the bat.

It tops off what has been an impressive year for the Worcestershire Rapids captain, who won an Indian Premier League title with Chennai Super Kings a month ago.

This is how the panel justified his inclusion as the selected all-rounder in the 12-man team.

"A dependable player for England during their campaign, Moeen Ali performed whenever and wherever he was needed.

"Taking seven wickets in just 14 overs throughout the tournament, Moeen Ali's off-spin was crucial in Eoin Morgan's plans, particularly early in the tournament.

"Exuding a calmness when stepping up, Ali bowled the first over of the innings in all four matches he was thrown the ball, only going for more than a run-a-ball once, in another tight spell of 1/27 against South Africa.

"Consistent in spells of 2/17, 2/18 and 2/15 on the journey, Ali found form with the bat late in the tournament, making 37 against South Africa, before a professional 51* (37) against New Zealand to carry England to a defendable 166."
