The England cricket team will visit Bangladesh at the end of February. They will play three ODI and T20 matches in the tour. Alex Hales is also expected to accompany the team on this tour. But this opener who is in rhythm has removed himself from this white ball series. Hales did not make the national team to play in Pakistan Super League (PSL). Since then there is discussion and criticism about this English cricketer Many have questioned his sense of responsibility towards the national team.

PSL is going to start from February 13. Hales will play for Islamabad United in this franchise-based T20 league. Recently, it was informed by the team that they are getting this opener for the entire season.However, according to the news of English media, Hales is not going to visit Bangladesh for the national team to play.

Hales said about playing in PSL, “I always enjoy playing T20. I can always play freely for Islamabad. I enjoy it a lot. That’s why I decided to play in PSL. Rawalpindi’s wicket is very batting friendly. I will get some PSL matches here. I am here. I am looking forward to playing. My team will play at their home ground as well. I want to entertain the crowd there. I want to give my best for the team.”

Meanwhile, Hales will get a huge amount of money by playing PSL for Islamabad. The franchise drafted him from the platinum category of the players’ draft. Where his remuneration is estimated to be around 2 crore taka. If he plays in the Bangladesh series, he will miss the PSL for a long time. And more than half of the salary can be deducted from it. So, leaving the national team, this English cricketer is leaning towards PSL.

On the other hand, if you play for the national team, you will get relatively less money. Because, this star opener is not in England’s central contract. In that case, for the fee of 3 ODI and T20 matches, Hales can get around 30 lakh rupees in total. Which is much less than PSL. That is why this English star is not playing in the national team except for the tempting offer of PSL.
