Srinagar: England hard hitting opening batter Alex Hales has announced his retirement from International cricket but will continue to play franchisee leagues. 

Alex Hales was one of the leading figures of England’s sucess in white ball cricket under Eoin Morgan after the 2015 World Cup, which culminated in them winning the 2019 tournament. 

“I have decided to retire from international cricket. It has been an absolute privilege to have represented my country,” Hales said in a post on Instagram. “I’ve made some memories and some friendships to last a lifetime and I feel that now is the right time to move on”.

“Throughout my time in an England shirt I’ve experienced some of the highest highs as well as some of the lowest lows. It’s been an incredible journey and I feel very content that my last game for England was winning a World Cup final.” 

Hales played 11 Test matches, 70 ODIs and 75 T20Is, having made his international debut in a T20 match against India in Manchester in August 2011. He was dropped from England’s 2019 ODI World Cup squad, and exiled from international cricket for three years thereafter, after news of a failed recreational drugs test broke a month before the tournament and spent nearly three years in exile.
