Israr Ali made his debut for Punjab in 1946-47 before partition, returning to Indian in 1952-53 as a member of the Pakistan side. He played two Test on that tour, but made little impression. As a left-hand batsman he was initially tried at the top of the order, and latterly lower down, with no success. As a fast-medium bowler, he on occasion opened for Pakistan. He was recalled for two more Tests, against Australia in 1959-60, taking five wickets but again failing with the bat.
