In 1997, after showing a strong performance for HBFC (House Building Finance Corporations) in first-class level Grade-II championship, eventually opting selectors to pick him for the Pakistan A tour to England.

Unluckily, after a successful start to the international career, he didn’t perform well and sustain promise in the next seven innings to 4 test matches. He failed badly in the two Test matches against South Africa and two against Zimbabwe just accumulated 108 runs and being eventually dropped and banished to domestic cricket. He had great potential to play long run for Pakistan, but a few failures, eventually shake the selectors and captain confidence. Otherwise if he manages to get few more chances he will had great career. However, in the presence of Saeed Anwar, and Aamir Sohail, there is no room for him at opening slots.
Therefore, he went in gloom to domestic level for his remaining career, where he flourished and made 5,881 runs @ 35.00 with the help of 14 hundred and 24 fifties. Ali, also scored 2,423 runs with the healthy average of 43.26, in 64 List-A matches with the help of 8 hundred 13 fifties. Ali Naqvi played domestic cricket for Pakistan Customs, Islamabad Cricket Association, Khan Research Labs, Pakistan National Shipping Coorporation, Karachi and Abbottabad.
