Alex Hales ruled out of BPL 2019
The England opener, Alex Hales has been tremendous with the bat for Rangpur Riders in the ongoing season of the Bangladesh Premier League (BPL). Rangpur Riders are currently at the top of the points table with 7 wins from 11 games. Riders have already qualified for the playoffs.
However, the Riders’ opener, Alex Hales has been ruled out of the remainder of the tournament due to a shoulder injury. He sustained the injury during the game against Rajshahi Kings when the Riders won the match by 6 wickets.
The coach of the Rangpur Riders, Tom Moody confirmed the news after his team’s practice session. ”We got the news last night and he required going back to London to have some specialist opinion on his left shoulder. He hurt his left shoulder last game during his batting and not in fielding and the English Cricket Board requested that he get some further advice and get an MRI and scan,” Moody said.
“Unfortunately, that’s the end of his tournament with us and obviously he had a significant impact and great value to us,” he concluded.
In the ongoing edition of the Bangladesh Premier League (BPL), Hales accumulated 304 runs from just 8 games at an outstanding average of 43.42 and a massive strike-rate of close to 170. He also scored a match-winning century against Chittagong Vikings.
