Alex Hales played an important role in England winning the title in the last Twenty20 World Cup. He pulled off that performance in the UAE International T20 League as well. He is not only in good form but this English opener is ruling with the bat. In terms of runs scored in the tournament, there is no one even close to him.
Hales playing for the Desert Vipers in this franchise-based league. He has been playing his natural batting since the beginning of the tournament. As he entertains the audience with a flurry of four-sixes, Hales is also raising his personal success statistics. As the ILT has just begun, the first century of the tournament has come from hard hitter Hales.
Hales has played in 5 matches so far. Where he scored a total of 418 runs in 5 innings. The desert opener has a batting average of 139.33 in ILT. However, he scored so many runs by batting at a slow pace, the thing isn’t like that, rather he did mercurial batting. He has been batting at a strike rate of 161.39 so far in this tournament. Has seen half-centuries in all 5 innings. In one of which he converted to century.
In the ongoing season of ILT, Hales is ahead of everyone in terms of runs. James Vince, who played the same number of matches, collected a total of 229 runs. Besides, Robman Powell, who is at number three, collected 227 runs. This West Indies batsman also played 5 matches. In that case, at the pace Hales is moving, he has the possibility of being top at the end of the tournament.
Meanwhile, Hales is not getting a chance in the English team even after being in a good rhythm with the bat. He continues to prove himself, especially in white-ball cricket. England has an important event like the ODI World Cup this year. It remains to be seen whether Hales will get a chance in that event. He last played ODI World Cup in this format in 2019. However, the way he is in rhythm, this English cricketer has given a message to the selectors to enter the team.
