NOTTINGHAM: Alex Hales looked to have played his way into England’s squad for their World Twenty20 title defence in September after making a match-winning 99 against the West Indies on Sunday.

Hales thrilled a sell-out Trent Bridge with a barnstorming innings that saw England to a seven-wicket win as they chased down the 173-run target.

“I’m happy with the way I played but there’s still a lot of cricket this season and hopefully I can keep myself in the frame,” said Hales. “It’s very mixed emotions to have not made the hundred. I just missed it but I’m very happy with the 99 and for England to get the win.”
