IPL 2018: Sunrisers Hyderabad sign Alex Hales as replacement for David Warner

Alex Hales

The BCCI release informed that the batsman was acquired for the base price of Rs 1 crore from the Registered and Available Player Pool (RAAP) resource.

England opener Alex Hales has been roped in by the Sunrisers Hyderabad as David Warner's replacement for the upcoming season of the Indian Premier League.

Warner resigned as captain of the IPL side before being banned for 12 months by Cricket Australia for his part in a ball-tampering scandal.

Hales is the only England player to have scored a Twenty20 worldwide century.

The Sunsrisers Hyderabad Team has replaced the banned Australian batsman David Warner by including England batsman Alex Hales in the squad.

"Although Alex missed out in the IPL auction, we knew there was a chance he could be signed up as a replacement, given his excellent record in the T20 Blast last summer and with England", said Notts' director of cricket Mick Newell.

The Australian played as opener along with Shikhar Dhawan for the Sunrisers, so, to fulfil the role of an opener, SRH picked Hales.

Sunrisers were quick to announce their new captain in New Zealand skipper Kane Williamson.

The 31-year-old Warner was the leading run-getter for SRH in the 2017 IPL as he guided them to the title in 2016. Despite an emotional address to the media, Warner stonewalled questions about who was aware of the ball-tampering and whether it was the first such incident within the team. Hales, however, has never actually played in an IPL match.

Hales has been in poor for Islamabad United in the Pakistan Super League recently where he could only manage a top score of 46.
