Alex Hales has been remarkable for England in the ICC T20 World Cup. He returned to the national team after three years following an injury to Jonny Bairstow.
In 5 matches, he has scored 211 runs at an average of 52.75 and a strike-rate of 148.59.
Eoin Morgan was not in favour of Hales after he failed two drug tests but Eoin’s retirement and Jos Buttler’s green signal ended his exile.
Kolkata Knight Riders, who have been struggling in the batting department for a long time, has decided to retain the English opener.
The right-handed was bought by KKR for INR 1.20 crore in the mega IPL auction but he pulled out of the edition at the last moment. He was done with bubble fatigue, which was introduced to prevent COVID-19 outbreak in the franchises.
On the other hand, Aaron Finch, who was added to the KKR squad as a replacement player, will not get any extention. The two-time champions have decided to release him after his failures for the Kolkata-based team and most recently for Australia in the World Cup.
