Alex Hales cleared to play for England after Bristol nightclub incident

Hales has been cleared to play again after being cleared of any wrongdoing.

England batsman Alex Hales will not face criminal charges over an incident outside a nightclub in Bristol in September and is available for selection, the England and Wales Cricket Board says.

Both Hales and Stokes were not considered for selection for the Ashes in Australia, but the former is now free to play in upcoming contests.

Both Hales and Stokes have not been considered for worldwide selection since September 25 - although they have remained on full pay - whilst the police investigation is ongoing. Doing anything else would have risked potentially prejudicing the outcome of the ongoing police investigation.

Banished England all-rounder Ben Stokes is having a nightmare on his return to cricket for Kiwi side Canterbury in their clash with Otago.

Stokes, 26, had been training on his own while England set off to Australia and will stay match-fit by playing for Canterbury in New Zealand, where he was born.

The pair were suspended by the European Central Bank from global cricket until further notice.

The Daily Mail is reporting that barring a decision from prosecutors in the next couple of days "England are now minded to include both men" in their one-day squad.

Hales has also been granted a no-objection certificate to allow him to play in the inaugural T10 tournament in Dubai between December 21 and 24.
