Alex Hales, the top-order batsman of England, is one of the most dangerous batters of the cricketing world. Particularly in T20 cricket, the seasoned campaigner has scored over 6900 T20 runs at 29.87, whilst maintaining a strike-rate of 142.51.
These days, the explosive batsman is reminding everyone about his prowess in the ongoing edition of the high quality Big Bash League (BBL). Playing for Sydney Thunder, Hales has mustered 568 runs in 16 innings, scoring 6 half-centuries. With an average of 40.57 and strike-rate of 147.91, the 31-year old aided Sydney to get close to the BBL final.
Seeing all this made Karachi Kings lick their lips as their platinum pick seems to be in red hot form in Australia’s domestic T20 competition. After playing for Islamabad United in the last season of the Pakistan Super League (PSL), it would be interesting to see how Hales fares for his new franchise in the 6-team event, scheduled to commence from February 20.
