Moeen's father picked up the award on his behalf having been a mentor and inspiration throughout his life and cricketing career. Munir Ali said "It was a real honour to pick up this award on behalf of my son. As a British Asian and a Muslim I know how much this award means to him. But for Moeen its always been about the cricket and I'm so glad that his current century has really helped to inspire the English team to raise their game."
Mr G T Jeyaseelan, Group Chief Operating Officer, Lycamobile Group of companies, commented: “The inaugural BEDSAs have been a great way of celebrating the sporting achievements of British ethnic minorities in the UK. We're delighted that Lycamobile Sportsman of the Year has gone to Moeen Ali, a well-deserved reward for a great British cricketer making a significant contribution to such a great team sport. These awards have been a long time coming and I look forward to them being developed in the future.”
