Eoin Morgan, the England ODI captain, expressed his desire to see the batting duo of Alex Hales and Jos Buttler in the Ashes squad, which is due to be announced on Wednesday (September 27). “Jos is going to Bangladesh and Alex is going to Stellenbosch in South Africa. That’s their alternative plans,” said Morgan.
“Ashes and World Cups are the pinnacle of our careers so to see guys playing in that format and doing well would boost confidence massively. They have a huge amount of ability in all three formats and if an opportunity presented itself in an Ashes series as opposed to a T20 league, I’d say take the Ashes every time,” added Morgan.
