Alex Hales has become the talk of the town as an injury to Johnny Bairstow gave an England comeback to the swashbuckling top order batter. Alex Hales blossomed on his international comeback to England colours as he starred in England’s convincing win against Pakistan which took place at the National Stadium in Karachi.
He took the Pakistan bowlers to the cleaners and made sure that he registered a wonderful half century from 40 balls with 7 fours in them which helped England to surpass Pakistan’s target of 156 with 4 balls to spare.
Alex Hales has had a day to remember as England made comeback on the shores of Pakistan after a whopping 17 years. After a long time, a top side has come for a long tour of 7 T20Is on home soil.
Speaking of T20I’s, Alex Hales has been a globetrotter in T20 leagues all around the world. He has played for Melbourne Renegades and Sydney Thunder in the Big Bash and has played for the Hyderabad side in the Indian T20 League. Besides, he has also played in the Pakistan Super League as well.
Playing both in India and Pakistan is bound to evoke comparisons as the two countries have their own T20 League which they consider as the best in the world. Since Alex Hales has played in both places, a question was thrown at him as to which is the best league in the world. To that, he said that the Pakistan Super League is the second best from the perspective of a batter because it is played on pitches that are bowler friendly and the quality of fast bowling in Pakistan is better.
While, he did not mention his favourite league in the world to play in, it can be understood that he would be referring to the Indian T20 League where he has played for the Hyderabad Franchaise.
“The Pakistan Super League is the second best league in the world, especially as a batter,” Alex Hales said.
