England batter Alex Hales is going through a tremendous run of form in T20 cricket. His continuous string of scores has made England head coach Matthew Mott think about recalling him into ODI cricket.

The batter made it back to England’s T20 World Cup squad for the first time since 2019. However, he is not selected for England’s ODI squad for the three-match ODI series at home starting from January 27.

Speaking to Sky Sports, he spoke on the possibility of Hales making a comeback to the ODI squad given his rich vein of form in T20I cricket.

“To me, white-ball cricket is white-ball cricket. He has shown he is not a slogger of the ball. He is a proper cricketer and there is absolutely no reason why he could not get in that 50-over team,” said Mott as quoted by Sky Sports.

We have got some tough selections coming up and we do not play a lot of one day cricket, but I am sure if he keeps in this rich vein of form it will be hard to keep him out” Mott further added.
