Moeen Ali will be back in the Indian Premier League in 2021 after securing a lucrative contract with Chennai Super Kings.

Moeen, who was released by Royal Challengers Bangalore last month, was picked up for 7crore (£692,000) in the mini IPL auction in Chennai on Thursday.

The England allrounder was at the centre of a bidding war between CSK and Punjab Kings - formerly known as Kings XI Punjab - with Super Kings eventually winning out.

Moeen has played 19 matches in his career, accumulating 309 runs at a strike rate of 158. He has 10 wickets, and an economy of 7.14, with the ball.

Across all T20s, Moeen - a prolific batsman against spin in short-format cricket - has 3,513 runs and 110 wickets.

He is a key member of the England T20 squad which will be looking to win the World Cup in India in October and November.

Moeen recently left the England Test tour of India to spend time at home with family prior to the white-ball leg of the trip.

He missed the Sri Lanka Tests in January after contracting Covid-19, and spent two weeks in quarantine in hotel rooms on the island.
