Hales eyeing up one-day role

December 22, 2012 10:20:27 UK

England Twenty20 opener Alex Hales is hoping that he can force his way into the ODI reckoning next year, having impressed in the shortest form of the game.

The 23-year-old Nottinghamshire right-hander has his sights set on a place in the 5-over set-up in 2013, starting by earning a call for a Lions tour to Australia.

All I can do is keep doing as well as I can and try to impress the selectors.

Alex Hales

Hales said: "There's an up-and-coming Lions tour I'm hoping to be part of and the Twenty20s in New Zealand.

"All I can do is keep doing as well as I can and try to impress the selectors - perform to the best of my ability whenever I get a chance.

"If I can get on the Lions tour and do well, then I hope I can put myself in the frame for it (one-day internationals).

"My long-term aim is still to play all three forms for England.
 
"Obviously I'm some way from that, but I have a lot of ambition and if that means putting in the hard yards with Twenty20 going into the one-dayers then that's it."

Hales top-scored with 56 as England lost the first T20 international to India in Pune on Thursday, with the tourists having a chance to draw the series with a win in Mumbai.

With England 2.37 to win on Saturday and 1.57 to be condemned to a second straight loss, Hales added: "Looking back, we can probably improve in all three aspects.

"We gave away a few soft dismissals with the bat and lost wickets in clumps - which is never ideal in Twenty20.

"We could have also been a bit more disciplined with the ball as well, so we've got a lot to work on."
