Watch the video of Moeen Ali responding to “Valimai” update demand :
“While I was fielding in the boundary line, a fan called me and asked about “Valimai update”. I got confused and couldn’t understand what he is talking about. Later, when I googled about it, I couldn’t control the laughter. The next day, Moeen Ali came to me and asked “What is Valimai?”. That’s when I realized that people asked “Valimai update” to him as well. “Master” is great but asking “Valimai update” to an England player is outstanding.” said Ashwin in his light manner.
