I think the reason why Ali is picked by his county is because of his batting, not his bowling. Without that, I wonder whether he would have a county at all. Regarding their relative merits as test bowlers, I'm mostly going by the impression that when Tredwell was dropped by England for the returning Ali, the team's spin bowling suffered.
