Alex Hales back in England set up?
« on: January 22, 2021, 08:19:26 PM »

Is it about time the ECB and Morgan got off their high horse and selected the best English T20 batsman around?
Surely I can't be the only one that thinks this needs to happen.

Absolutely. His performances have been outstanding in franchise cricket and he's been punished enough.

He's an idiot.

But...he didn't hurt anyone, he didn't cheat, he didn't underperform for any reason.

He broke the trust held Sacred in the changing room and the timing just before the World Cup was awful.

So we are in KP territory where the Captain and team mates feel he let them down, and the breakdown of trust phrase again was brought out, same as KP.

I pretty much think you serve your time if you do the crime and then you're back, everyone makes mistakes.
If it had been match fixing, that's unforgivable so you forfeit the right to represent England.

Morgan is all powerful at the ECB I can't think of a captain in recent memory who is so respected and calls the shots.

The best thing Morgan can do is show what a good leader he is and open the door for Hales.

I'm not sure he gets in the T20 team but he should be available and in the squad.

Did the crime, did the time.....missed a World Cup spot potentially. Time to wipe the slate yes I agree.

If Steve Smith and David Warner can be forgive, then so should Hales. His crimes against cricket are far less.

I agree he seems like a bit of a muppet,  with what's happened. But he sure does know how to play cricket with the white ball. One of the first names on the team sheet for me.

It would be a shame for politics to get in the way.

I don't think....it's that sort of situation, at least nothing I've read says it is.

So we wouldn't be back in KP v Moores(he goes or I go)....ok your both sacked  :)

Unless you know something we don't.

Ive played in the Notts Prem with a few of hales friends.

Ive got some pretty suspect pictures on my camera roll from hales Snapchat, lets just say it likes to snow in Nottingham! Especially when your wearing your England playing gear and got a few girls in you room!

Sounds pretty standard

The guy served a ban, leave him alone. If hes performing bring him in

True true seeing worse from both cricketers and footballers, however girls snorting cocaine in your england ODI shirt and England helmet maybe not the best look  :o

for me though long as hes the best option for the team get him back in, no agendas from me we all have lives outside work. Long as England have the strongest team available that all that matters

Morgan does not want him around.
Morgan is the most powerful man involved in English cricket right now.
Hales won't play again.

I didnt say it was mate. But for me, Morgan as captain is more important to the team than Hales playing.

Also... You only have to Google what Morgan has said on the matter.

And rightly so. Considering where the limited overs teams were when he took over and where he has taken them I say give him the keys to the castle.

This sort of no-nonsense approach should have been used with KP back in that time. No one is bigger than the team

Morgan is basing his decision on Hales nearly costing them a world Cup. But if he keeps the form going over the next few years (a big if I know) surely Morgan not selecting him, could potentially cost a world Cup or two.
