Hales signs two-year BPL deal with Rangpur Riders

England limited-overs specialist Alex Hales has signed a lucrative two-year deal to play for Rangpur Riders in the sixth edition of Bangladesh Premier League two years after controversially pulling out of the 2016 ODI series along with Eoin Morgan on security grounds.

The 29-year-old batsman, who is with the England limited-overs squad currently touring Sri Lanka, renegotiated a white-ball deal with Nottinghamshire at the start of the recent county season in a bid to make himself available for the world’s T20 tournaments.

Having played this year under Tom Moody, the head coach of Indian Premier League side Sunrisers Hyderabad, Hales is now set to be reunited with the Australian in the BPL, where he will open alongside the West Indian left-hander Chris Gayle.

Hales has previously played for Islamabad United in the Pakistan Super League and Melbourne Renegades in the Australian Big Bash League.
