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.
