Shozair Abbas Ali (born 28 December 1992) is an English first-class cricketer. Ali is a left-handed batsman who bowls right-arm fast-medium. He was born at Birmingham, Warwickshire.

Educated at Queensbridge School and Moseley Sixth Form College, Ali played cricket when he was fourteen years of age.[1] He was quickly scouted from Warwickshire district trials and has represented Warwickshire since under-15 level age-group cricket.[1][2] In January 2012, he toured Bangladesh with the England Under-19s, making his Youth One Day International (YODI) debut against Bangladesh Under-19s, with him making three further YODI appearances during the tour.[3] He was selected later in the year in England's fifteen man squad for the Under-19 Cricket World Cup in Australia.[4] Prior to the tournament, England played a warm up quadrangular series against Australia, India and New Zealand Under-19s, with Ali playing in three matches.[3] In the World Cup that followed, he made two appearances against Nepal and Bangladesh Under-19s.[3]

Having played Second XI cricket since 2010,[2] Ali made his full debut for Warwickshire in their first first-class match of the 2013 season against Oxford MCCU at the University Parks,[5] scoring 10 runs in the match and taking the wickets of Tom Fell and Charlie Ellison.[6]
