Hales 'has lost the trust of the team' – Vaughan


Hales has played 70 one-day internationals for England, scoring 14 fifties and six centuries, with a highest of 171

Former England captain Michael Vaughan says Alex Hales “has lost the trust of the team” and questioned if the batsman can make an international return.

Hales, 30, was withdrawn from the squad for an “off-field incident” that led to his second England suspension.

“I don’t know how he comes back from this,” Vaughan said on BBC Radio 5 Live’s Tuffers and Vaughan podcast.

“He has lost the opportunity of playing for his country in a World Cup on home soil and he’ll live with that forever.”

Hales was first suspended by England following his punishment – which also included a fine – for an incident involving Ben Stokes outside a Bristol nightclub in September 2017.

The latest refers to an “off-field incident last year”, which the Guardian reported
