Just a week ago, 14 overseas players left the PSL, and now 10 more have distanced themselves from the tournament. As per reports, England players Jason Roy, Hales, James Vince, Tymal Mills, Liam Dawson, Liam Livingstone, Lewis Gregory, and West Indian Carlos Braithwaite along with South African Rilee Roussouw and James Foster (Coach) have returned home.
Hales was representing Karachi Kings in the tournament. He has played seven games and scored 239 runs with two half-centuries. He also smashed his highest score of an unbeaten 80. Hales averaged 59.75 in PSL.
However, in cricket, Hales is not the first player to be checked for coronavirus. Before him, Australia fast bowler Kane Richardson and New Zealand quick Lockie Ferguson were also tested for the disease. But fortunately, the reports came negative.
