Alex Hales has been fined a week's wages by Nottinghamshire after reporting late for the final day of the club's Championship match against Middlesex at Trent Bridge on Saturday, May 12.

Hales, who has played four T20 internationals for England, had been dismissed in his second innings of the match shortly before the close on the third evening of the game. After a late night on Friday, he overslept on Saturday morning and did not wake until lunchtime. The Middlesex side included England's Test captain, Andrew Strauss.

"We can confirm that Alex was fined," a club spokesman told ESPNcricinfo, "but it is club policy not to comment upon the reasons."

Hales was part of England's T20 squad in the UAE over the winter but was not selected for the side.

"After a late night on Friday"...doesn't sound very professional if it implies what I think...

I always believe, George dobell is the one who works for his money. He writes and informs even a small information without any fuss.

this just made laugh....surely its the duty of the Notts staff to go around and wake anyone who is not up before play, bit stupid on both parts.

why fine him? one look out of the window by the management would have told them why he did not get up!
