England: Alex Hales to miss rest of India tour through injury

By BBC

England opener Alex Hales will miss the remainder of the tour of India after scans showed he has suffered a hand fracture.

The 28-year-old damaged his right hand during the second one-day international defeat by India on Thursday in Cuttack.

Right-hander Hales sustained the injury after attempting a catch in the outfield and jarring his hand on the ground.

He will return to England on Saturday and will see a hand surgeon next week.

The ECB said England will announce Hales’ replacement in the Twenty-20 squad for the three-match series against India, starting on January 26, in “due course”.

England play the final one-day game of their three-match series with India in Kolkata on Sunday.

They are yet to win on this tour, having lost four and drawn one of the five-match Test series that came before.
