Do England need him is the question? I'd say not. I think there'd be more value in Ali coming in for Malan, with Bairstow at 3, Stokes 4. Morgan 5 and Ali 6. Gives an extra spinner then.

If Hales mentality is right and Morgan wants him in and around he would be in before any of our top order for me.



You always need arguably your best T20 batsman.

Before any? Big shout that. He's very good but not sure he's above Butler, Bairstow, Morgan (maybe even Stokes) in white ball as a batsmen and also what they bring to the side.

Buttler in T20s, no. Bairstow it's a close run thing, Morgan plays a different role to Hales so not a like for like swap and Stokes (as a pure T20 batsman) I don't think has shown he is the match of Hales at international level.

There's an argument that Stokes is wasted at 6 which is not without merit. Not sure it's the most sensible selection but I would love to see them experiment with Buttler, Stokes, Hales and Bairstow as the top 4. That said, I've still got a lot of time for Roy and Malan hasn't done a lot wrong either.

He would be in my squad he showed around the world he good however if he not to be managed and doesnt have the trust then it isn't going to happen.

Batting alone in T20 he up there and i suspect on batting alone he get into most top 3 in world T20 cricket.

I'd agree, subjective but think Hales is a better t20 player than anyone in the England side bar Buttler.

Timing may again be an issue if Hales is to be invited to train and then possibly available for selection.

Same situation as the 50 over WC, 2020 is in Oct/Nov....

You would think Morgan will want his batsmen and the order settled well in advance of the tournament.

I'm not sure I would pick Hales over Roy myself, even thou Roy can be hit and miss-they would want to give him every chance I guess
