He has scored more than 1000 runs across the last two seasons in the BBL

Alex Hales will link up with former England coach Trevor Bayliss for the first time since he was banished from the national side on the eve of the 2019 World Cup after securing a deal to return to Sydney Thunder in the BBL.

Hales has not played for England since he failed two recreational drug tests shortly before the tournament that the hosts went on to win two years ago although Bayliss ended his time as coach at the end of that summer following the Ashes.

He was overlooked for a recall when England had to select an entirely new ODI squad for the series against Pakistan earlier this year following a Covid-19 outbreak among the original group.

Hales has been prolific for Thunder over the last two seasons with hauls of 576 and 543 runs including a top score of 110 in the 2020-21 campaign which saw Thunder reach the Knockout final where they were eliminate by Brisbane Heat.
