Bengaluru, December 4: Alex Hales will be considered for England selection, following confirmation that he is no longer a suspect in relation to an incident in Bristol in September.
Hales has been a suspect in a night club brawl at Bristol that also involved England all-rounder Ben Stokes. Stokes is currently in Canterbury, New Zealand, to play domestic cricket.
The ECB Board has convened via conference call to make the decision after being informed that Hales is deemed a witness and will face no charges.
The independent Cricket Discipline Commission has stayed the internal disciplinary process for both Alex Hales and Ben Stokes until the conclusion of any potential criminal proceedings relating to the incident.
Players, England Selectors and the England management team have all been informed.
ECB has also approved a formal request for a 'No Objection Certificate' to allow Hales to play in the inaugural T10 Cricket League in Dubai from December 21-24.
