Alex Hales signs new white-ball deal with Nottinghamshire

by Wisden Staff 2 minute read

Alex Hales has signed a new two-year contract to play white-ball cricket for Nottinghamshire.

Hales signed a two-year deal to play solely limited-overs cricket for Notts in 2018, and his new deal will now see him stay with the club through to the end of the 2021 season.

The 30-year-old has played 85 List A and 113 T20 matches for Notts, hitting 6,415 runs in white-ball cricket for the county side.

Hales last played for England in March

Hales has also played 130 limited-overs matches for England but was omitted from the squad for the 50-over World Cup earlier this year after he failed a drugs test.

“Notts is like home to me now – I couldn’t really envisage playing anywhere else,” said Hales. “After a tough start to the summer, everyone at the club has been brilliant with me. I want to repay the faith they have shown and that will continue to be my aim for at least the next two years.”

Mick Newell, Notts’ director of cricket, added: “Alex is a highly sought-after white-ball cricketer right across the world. He has delivered a number of match-winning performances for us down the years and we’re looking for that to continue.”
