Hales absence due to 'personal reasons'

19th April 2019, 19:25 by Aidan Perkins

Nottinghamshire batsman Alex Hales missed Friday's One-Day Cup game against Lancashire due to "personal reasons", the county have said.

The England man did not feature in the Trent Bridge clash and Notts released a statement explaining his absence, with no date set at this stage for his return.

It read: "Alex Hales has made himself unavailable for selection for personal reasons and no timetable has been set for his return to action."

The 30-year-old is due to join up with the England squad for their World Cup preparations at the end of the month.

Hales was named in England's preliminary 15-man squad for this summer's home World Cup and it's unclear at this stage if he will play in the tournament with no more details released over his unexpected absence.

Notts edged out Lancashire in Friday's game, winning by 11 runs.
