England score ODI world record 481-6 against Australia

NOTTINGHAM: England broke their own all-time record for the highest total ever scored in a men's one-day international when they posted 481 for six Australia at Trent Bridge on Tuesday. When Alex Hales, who already had a hundred to his name, hoisted Jhye Richardson for six in the 46th over it meant England had broken their previous world record total of this level -- also set at Trent Bridge -- of 444 for three against Pakistan in 2016. Hales eventually holed out for 147 on his Nottinghamshire home ground after opener…

England’s Hales targets red-ball return next year

LONDON: England opener Alex Hales has not closed the door on his red-ball career and plans to return to the longer format of the game after next year’s 50-over World Cup. In February, Hales opted to focus on limited-overs cricket for his county side Nottinghamshire, leading England coach Trevor Bayliss to suggest that the current congested schedule could see more players follow suit. “I’m certainly not turning my back on four-day cricket,” Hales, who is looking to cement his spot in the national team, told BBC Radio…

England’s Hales turns back on Test cricket

LONDON: Alex Hales announced on Tuesday he is turning his back on Test cricket after signing a new limited-overs contract with county side Nottinghamshire following a similar decision by England team-mate Adil Rashid. Rashid last week said he intended to focus solely on shorter, white-ball cricket for Yorkshire this season and Hales has penned a deal until the end of the 2019 season that will see him feature only in 50-over and 20-over formats of the game. Hales's decision is likely to strengthen fears that England's…

England's opening batsman Alex Hales, who celebrated his twenty-ninth birthday last week, has named his greatest All Time XI.

LONDON: Batsman Alex Hales will face no criminal charges over a fracas that resulted in an England suspension for him and all-rounder Ben Stokes, cricket chiefs said Monday. Hales, a 28-year-old opener, has not played any professional cricket since he and Stokes became embroiled in the late-night incident outside a Bristol nightclub on September 25.

Hales’ lawyer says charges unlikely

LONDON: England batsman Alex Hales is unlikely to face charges for his involvement in the late-night row that could cost Ben Stokes his place on this year's Ashes tour. Stokes may be sidelined for the trip to Australia after being arrested in the early hours of September 25 on suspicion of causing actual bodily harm during a night out in Bristol in September. The all-rounder was released under investigation and Hales was with his England team-mate when they were involved in an altercation with several men. After…
