Pakistan spinner Shadab Khan said powerful England top order batsman Alex Hales is “the best player in the world”.

This comes after he recently played alongside Hales while captaining Islamabad United in PSL 7.

Hales finished as the fifth-highest run-scorer in the tournament with 355 runs in nine matches, which included three fifties, at an average of 44.37 and a strike-rate of 147.30.

“Alex Hales is the best player in the world,” Shadab was quoted as saying by Cricket Pakistan. “He has performed whether it’s in international cricket or leagues around the world.”

He will now play for Pakistan in the white-ball series against Pakistan after being picked in both the ODI and T20I teams.

The limited overs series will consist of three ODIs and a lone T20 International. All the matches will be played in Lahore, with the first ODI beginning on March 29 in Lahore.
