I can't actually find where it says exactly what he's done. Did he get caught smoking dope? By the press?
@strang Hales failed a drug test for cocaine use. The second time he has failed such a test.

That combined with his involvement with the incident in Bristol has left him open to these sanctions.

Also it appears he isn't the best 12th man either which hasn't helped his cause.

Hales has made a series of poor choices, giving up red ball cricket was one of them too.

He is out of contract at the end of this season. Any speculation where he will move too?

What kind of playing surfaces do you think Colombia would produce?  ;)

According to Morgan, Hales was dropped due to a breakdown fo trust between hales and the group.

Senior players had a meeting all agreed he should be dropped and relayed this back to Giles who made the final decision

Yes the Guardian again....they must have a direct source....said it was Morgan and Bayliss and senior players who vetoed Hales coming in. I said before Hales is short of friends in the England side and it seems that way.

I don't like the phrase breakdown of trust(KP!!) but this is the biggest year for England and the players will know distractions and bad publicity is the enemy.

Hales was lucky he was not in the dock with Stokes back from that night in Bristol if you believe in Karma maybe it has come around.

No excuses for the ECB from me thou, I agreed with others is smells of a cover up, they have previous.  :)

Very good from Morgan.

Shame the ECB dont appear to have the convictions and standards that he is trying to relay to the group.

It would be interesting to know who leaked these from inside the ECB given how fee people were privy to the knowledge.  Becomes rather important when Giles has confirmed that Hales would still be part of the world cup squad without the leak
