Cricket news - Injured Alex Hales out of remainder of BPL

Hales came into his own in the second half of the BPL 2019.

Rangpur Riders have been dealt a big blow with star batsman Alex Hales ruled out of the remainder of the Bangladesh Premier League due to a shoulder injury sustained during the game against Rajshahi Kings.

The announcement was made by head coach Tom Moody at Mirpur on Thursday (January 31) after Riders' practice session.

''We got the news last night and he required going back to London to have some specialist opinion on his left shoulder,'' said Moody.

''He hurt his left shoulder last game during his batting and not in fielding and the English Cricket Board requested that he get some further advice and get and MRI and scan,'' he said

''Unfortunately that's the end of his tournament with us and obviously he had a significant impact and great value to us,'' he added.

Hales played a significant part in the latter half of the tournament, helping the Riders make a late surge into the playoffs. Riders lost four out of their opening six games but made a remarkable turnaround by winning four matches in a row largely due to the brilliance of Hales, who scored 85 not out, 100, 55 and 33 respectively.
