Ashes hero Moeen Ali opens £2m sports complex at his old school

A key player in England's Ashes win has opened a £2m sports complex at his old school in Birmingham.

The facilities were always good here. I always found we had the facilities just about to do whatever we wanted, but I think with this now - it would've taken on a different level.

And I that's why I'm pretty confident that we will have more athletes and sports people coming from here.

So hopefully we can use this and have more sports people coming up.
