Captain Eoin Morgan insists Alex Hales can win England recall

Captain Eoin Morgan insists Alex Hales can win England recall if he can rebuild trust with players after he was dropped ahead of World Cup triumph following failed drugs test

  • Hales was dropped after failing a second test for recreational drug use
  • England batsman has targeted a recall for this year’s Twenty20 World Cup 
  • White-ball captain Morgan says he has yet to rebuild the trust lost with players

Eoin Morgan insists ‘the door is still open’ for Alex Hales to return to England’s white-ball cricket — but says he has yet to rebuild the trust lost when he was dropped from last year’s World Cup squad after failing a second test for recreational drug use. 

Hales has targeted a recall for this year’s Twenty20 World Cup, if it takes place in Australia in early November. 

And the England white-ball captain did not rule him out when he spoke on Monday to launch this year’s Abu Dhabi T10 tournament in late November.

‘We don’t know how long it will take to regain that trust but certainly the door is still open.’
