Ali hails from the nondescript village of Kamalasagar in Tripura’s Sepahijala district. After the barbed fences were extended along the Indo-Bangla borders, part of his village, including his residence, was incidentally excluded from the Indian side. Although Ali is an Indian citizen, he had to cross the fence to attend his cricket coaching.

According to Ali’s parents, from his school years, he developed an enormous interest in sports and took the solid decision to pursue his career as a sportsman in cricket.

Ali secured the 472nd rank in the list. His impeccable skills at turning the ball in the crease finally gave his life a positive spin.
