Alex Hales was once the preferred opening batsman for England along with Jason Roy. Then, injury happened. Bairstow got a look in and he had an august run, a dream run, which made him an inevitable cog in the English front-wheel. Hales, however, had always been an important member of the England side. A regular member. He had always invariably been in the squad, always got an odd game in his bag. But all, until now.
Alex Hales was tested positive in a recreational drug test. In reaction to it, ECB has removed him from their 15 man World Cup side.
No replacement has yet been announced. James Vince, the Hampshire skipper, who very recently scored a 190, seems the frontrunner.
On the other hand, Hales’ management company, 366 Group, have explained great disbelief on the verdict.
