Profile

As a 16-year old, Alex Hales hit 55 runs off a single over in a game of the Cricket Idol T20 tournament in 2005 held at Lord's, that included three no-balls, eight sixes and one four. Some called him the next Kevin Pietersen, while others ridiculed at the irony of selecting him as a fast bowler in the competition.

Born in Hillingdon, Middlesex, the tall right-handed batsman first played for Buckinghamshire in 2006; before he went on to make his first-class debut for Nottinghamshire in 2008, after scoring a century in only his second appearance for the Notts in 2007. Hales had a very successful 2008, as he represented the England Under-19s and played some wonderful cricket in their youth Test matches and one-dayers. He impressed with a batting average of 50 in Tests and 30 in the one-day arena. Hales was then named in England's Performance Programme squad in the winter of 2009-10. Such was the impact he created on the domestic front, that he received a surprise maiden international call-up to England's Twenty20 squad in 2011, to face India in their one-off T20I at Old Trafford. It was a forgettable debut as Hales was out on a duck. However, in his 5th T20I, he became the first cricketer in T20I history to be dismissed on 99.
