England’s fiery opening batsman was shockingly omitted from the World Cup squad at the last minute, after he was found to test positive for recreational drug usage. Despite the 21-day ban and a massive jolt in his bubbling career, Hales has stated that he will be supporting his team with full zeal from the sidelines.
“I'm still a fan and wish all the boys all the best. What we have done over the last few years has been unbelievable. I will be (keeping an eye on the World Cup). The guys deserve to win it and I'll be sat there watching and cheering,” Hales said.
Meanwhile, he expressed his intentions to reform his disciplinary issues and target a comeback to the national side. Keen on resuming training as soon as possible, Hales promised to put in the required hard work.
“I've got a few things to do with the ECB, there's obviously a process to go through and then I start training I guess,” he spoke about his future with the English team.
