Bucks batter could join IPL
ALEX Hales could play in the Indian Premier League this winter.
The former Gerrards Cross and Amersham batter is in talks with his county Nottinghamshire and hopes to reach an agreement that will allow him to join the auction in February.
Hales, who became the number one ranked T20 batter in the ICC ranks last month, wasn’t permitted to take part this year as it clashed with the English season.
The 24-year-old said: “I’m in talks with Notts at the moment about how it’s going to work but hopefully everyone comes out happy.
“I would definitely love to be involved in the auction next year – I think it is a three-year auction coming up so I’d love to have the chance to be in it.
“Talks are quite early but I’m pretty hopeful that both parties will come to an agreement.
“It would be very frustrating [if Notts said no] but the early signs that I have got from the coach are that we will be able to come to some form of agreement and I’ll be able to go in the auction.”
