Eoin Morgan, England’s skipper, has clearly said that if Alex Hales wants to return to England Cricket Team, he shall regain the trust of the colleagues and the management first.
Alex was found guilty back in 2019 when he failed in the second recreational drug test. The incident took place before the ICC World Cup 2019.
However, despite playing international cricket, Alex was the part of regular leagues across the globe. Recently, he played in Pakistan’s Super League under Imad Wasim’s leadership for Karachi Kings and did an exceptional performance. He also played for the Barbados Tridents in the Caribbean Premier League (CPL) followed by the Sydney Thunder in the Big Bash League (BBL).
However, Eoin Morgan was disgraced by his act so in later times, he did not play any international cricket. The skipper thinks Alex Hales, once regains the trust, the doors are still open for him.
Alex Hales can still be considered: Eoin Morgan
“In terms of what that looks like, practically, it’s human nature, it’s about developing trust. I don’t think you can put a time limit on gaining back that trust, and that’s not just with me, that’s with every member of the squad, the backroom staff, the selectors,” Morgan was quoted as saying at the launch of the Abu Dhabi T10 on Monday, May 4, reported by Cricbuzz.
“And that does take time. We’re in May, so it’s 11 months ago that the incident happened with Alex, so it’s actually not that long ago that it happened,” he added.
“What happened was actually quite considerably harmful to the environment, which obviously led to the breakdown in trust between Alex and our players, so to say, how long that will take to regain, we don’t know, but certainly the door is still open for that trust to be built back up,” Morgan added.
