Alex Hales Added To England Squads For T20 World Cup, Pakistan T20Is

Alex Hales has returned to the England squad after three years as he was added to the squad for the T20I tour of Pakistan and the 2022 T20 World Cup, the England and Wales Cricket Board said on Wednesday. Hales, who last played for England in 2019, has been added to the roster to replace wicketkeeper-batter Jonny Bairstow, who sustained an injury while playing golf that will leave him out for the foreseeable future.

Nottinghamshire batter Alex Hales has been called up to England’s ICC Men’s T20 World Cup squad to replace Jonathan Bairstow of Yorkshire after a left ankle injury he sustained last week ended his chances of entering the tournament. the ECB said in its statement.

“Hales, 33, who last represented England in March 2019, has also been added to the IT20 squad for the Pakistan tour,” the board added.

Hales has played 60 T20Is to date, eight of which were 1950s and a century.

Hales had tested positive for a banned substance that forced the selectors to withdraw the right-hander from the preliminary 15-man squad for the 2019 World Cup, which England later won.

He has since been ineligible for selection, until now.
