The Cricket Paper - - FEATURE - By Seth Fran­cis

ALEX Hales is set to return to the Eng­land set-up sooner than ex­pected hav­ing had his cast re­moved from his bro­ken hand.

Hales was not named in the 14-man squad for the ODI series against the West Indies with thoughts that he was go­ing to be out for six to eight weeks.

How­ever, hav­ing had his cast re­moved, he is able to re­sume light bat­ting drills wear­ing a soft cast and Not­ting­hamshire head coach Peter Moore is con­fi­dent Hales, 28, will be able to travel to the Caribbean.

Moores said: “Alex is go­ing re­ally well. He had his first cast re­moved and he now has his soft cast on. That’s put him in a po­si­tion to be able to do some light bat­ting drills.

“He’s on track to be able to take his place on the tour of the West Indies as it stands. He’s mak­ing re­ally good progress.”
