Hales cleared for England selection again
ALEX Hales and Ben Stokes remain eligible for England selection following the outcome of a disciplinary hearing into their roles in a fight outside a Bristol nightclub in 2017.
All-rounder Stokes, who was cleared of affray in August, was handed an eight-match England ban by the Cricket Discipline Commission Disciplinary Panel but those games are deemed to have been served.
Nottinghamshire batsman Hales was given a six-match white-ball ban, with two already served and four suspended.
Stokes was fined a total of £30,000, while Hales was fined £17,500, £10,000 of which is suspended.
Hales said: “I am relieved today’s decision by the CDC means this chapter is now closed and I can move on with my career.
“There is no doubt I fell below the high standards expected of an international sportsman and that was the reason for my decision to admit the charges and accept the punishment handed down.”
