- Opener seen as ideal replacement for injured Bairstow
- Notts batsman has not played for England since 2019
Alex Hales is set to make a dramatic England return in the T20 World Cup after positive talks about ending his three-year exclusion from the set-up.
The 33-year-old has not featured for his country since a failed recreational drugs test in the summer of the 2019 World Cup led to his banishment from the squad. During his subsequent exile, a “breakdown in trust” was often cited by the captain, Eoin Morgan.
