A Guardian report on Friday claimed Hales, named last week in England's preliminary World Cup squad, is serving a 21-day ban fromcricket for the drug incident.

The right hander, who plays for Nottinghamshire in county circuit, is part of the England 15-man squad for the upcoming World Cup.

This is the second time Hales has been found guilty of using a banned recreational drug in his professional career.

Only two other films in Hollywood history have taken in more: " Avatar " in 2009 and " Titanic ", released in 1997. The Walt Disney Company had "cautiously" predicted an unprecedented $ 300 million but went well beyond its target.


Hales, 30, has missed the start of his county Nottinghamshire's Royal London Cup campaign, with the club stating last Thursday that he had "made himself unavailable for selection for personal reasons" and setting no date for his return.

The ECB have refused to release an official statement on the matter, with a spokesperson for the organisation saying: "We have a duty of confidentiality, therefore we are unable to provide any further comment".

Twitter responded harshly to the news. The England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) sentenced the cricketer to suspension for 21 days on Friday.

Labour's policy is for the United Kingdom to achieve net zero emissions before 2050, an ambition which falls far short of Extinction Rebellion's call for a 2025 deadline.


All English cricketers, men and women, are subjected to the hair follicle tests twice a season. Moreover, Hales has bagged total six centuries and 14 half-centuries in just 70 One Day International matches for his side. It is only at this stage that their county is informed, as well as the European Central Bank chief executive, Tom Harrison, and PCA equivalent, David Leatherdale. Hales has also joined up with his England team-mates for a three-day training camp in Cardiff ahead of the Ireland trip, and it is understood that no formal conversations with the management have been planned during that time. In 2017, he was with Ben Stokes when the latter was involved in a street brawl outside a pub in Bristol that led to legal action as well as penalties from the cricket authorities.

The forthcoming Cricket World Cup hosts England have suffered a major setback a month before the start of the tournament.

England supporters want a nice, smooth approach to this World Cup but we know England cricket and it's unlikely to go that way.
