Alex Hales, England opening batsman, made a surprising announcement recently when he stepped away from cricket for an indefinite period due to personal reasons. His decision hit English fans hardly and created a discrepancy in England's batting ranks.
However, England management still expects Alex Hales to join the training camp which is to take place prior to the ODI series against Pakistan. With Jason Roy not 100% fit, and Hales unavailable for selection, England finds itself in a spot of bother.
Alex Hales was part of England's preliminary ICC World Cup squad. England has not made any replacement of Hales yet. England management still has not lost hope from his side but there is no official statement from Hales so far regarding his participation in the camp.
