England’s Alex Hales has been suspended following an “off-field incident”, a spokesman for the batsman has said.

Hales missed Nottinghamshire’s One-Day Cup games last week for what the county described as “personal reasons”.

The incident happened last year, and the player’s spokesman added: “While the issue is not cricket related, he accepted it was right he was suspended.”

Hales, 30, will join England for a pre-World Cup training camp on Saturday.

He is part of a preliminary 15-man squad named for the World Cup on home soil, which begins on 30 May.

England’s first match of the summer is against Ireland in a one-day international in Dublin on 3 May.
