Alex Hales is all set to make comeback in cricket thanks to the inaugural edition of T10 league in Dubai. He will be representing Maratha Arabians which is captained by Virender Sehwag. Hales was caught in a late night street-brawl incident during the West Indies series, for which Ben Stokes and him were suspended by the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB). Meanwhile, Hales was cleared from the act last week and was given a No Objection letter from ECB to participate in the T10 league.

Apart from participating in the T10 league, Hales would also be back to playing for England in the ODI series against Australia. Stokes would also be back in action then.

Addressing the reporters in Dubai, Hales expressed his happiness on his comeback.

Disappointment over The Ashes

“I was disappointed not to be out there on the [Ashes] trip. But if I was out there, obviously I wouldn’t be here. When one door closes, another one opens. In T20, if you face two or three dot balls, you have a little bit of time to build your innings, but 10 overs will creep up on you very quickly,” Hales was quoted in a report from ESPNCricinfo.

Hopeful of England’s fortunes in The Ashes

“They definitely have got it in them. But it is going to be tough. The WACA is one of Australia’s best grounds for them to play at home. But the guys are tough. I know them all really well as a team, and they are tough individuals. I think they missed out at Adelaide, because they had chances to win the game there. They will know that. I don’t see why they can’t turn it around in Perth, and suddenly at 2-1, it is anyone’s for the taking,” a hopeful Hales added.
