- Coach Matthew Mott says opener has been ‘a real lightning rod’
- Hales has been one of England’s players of T20 World Cup
Alex Hales’s rehabilitation into the England setup could continue beyond Sunday’s T20 World Cup final after the white-ball coach, Matthew Mott, indicated that he was ready to bring the opener into the 50-over side before next year’s World Cup in that format.
Hales returned to the England fold in September after an absence of over three years and has been one of their players of the tournament, scoring 52, 47 and an unbeaten 86 in his past three innings. He played the last of his 70 one-day internationals in March 2019, and recently said he would be keen to represent his country again in the longer format.
