Alex Hales to make a comeback in England national team?
England’s newly appointed coach Chris Silverwood has talked about the possible return of England batsman Alex Hales and said that still Hales has a lot of opportunity to enter into the main team.
Hales had been out from competitive cricket for almost half a year since he played his last competitive match against West Indies in March. The 30-year old Hales was caught positive in the drug test before the World Cup this year. And it happened not for a single time, in fact it happened twice which threw him out of the World Cup squad unexpectedly. Since then, he was not considered for the main team. Recently he had not picked for the New Zealand tour also which is scheduled to start on November.
But it looks like under new management, Hales has got a positive hint and surely he’ll try to prove his worth again to make a comeback in the national team.
“I’m a major fan for never saying never. I feel that Alex has most likely still got a little bit of room to makeup yet time is an incredible healer and never discount anyone,” said Chris Silverwood, England’s head coach.
After his exclusion from the World Cup squad, he had been involved with different T20 tournaments around the World. He finished as a highest run-scored for his T20 Blast side Nottinghamshire in this season. He scored 418 runs at the strike rate of 140.26. Recently, he had played his part in the Caribbean Premier League (CPL) where his team Barbados Tridents won the title for the second time in CPL. Hales scored 197 runs in 12 matches for his team.
