The following contains spoilers from chuckySeason 2 finale.

On this crazy little show called chuckywe’ve seen the killer doll dish out electrocutions, beheadings, explosions and a myriad of stabbings… but we still weren’t ready for that disgusting, gory outing in Wednesday’s crazy finale!

As we learned at the top of the episode, Chucky swapped bodies with Dr. Mixter seconds before the doll was shot in the face by Andy. Since the doc had a brand new doll hidden in a safe, another switcheroo meant that Charles Lee Ray was back inside another Good Guy doll, and ready for revenge on Lexy, Jake, and Devon. Unfortunately for Lexy’s mother, Michelle, she encountered the pointy end of the maniac doll’s new chainsaw and was literally split in two.

When Tiffany came to pick up the Belle doll from Caroline, she was on her former lover’s BS. With the gun now in Lexy’s possession, Tiff let the girl go after him, effectively ending Chucky’s reign of terror for good.

Ha! Barely.

Lexy hacked the doll’s face as revenge for her mother’s murder, but when Tiffany fled the scene, she discovered that Belle was just another Chucky doll in drag (!), and the monstrous Charles lived again.

Needless to say we had a lot questions for designer Don Mancini after this delightful gut-filled season. Below, he talks to TVLine about blasting Devon Sawa, how exactly you cut a character in half, the always-playing Jennifer Tilly, what’s in store for GG (fka Glen/Glenda) and much more.

TVLINE | Poor Devon Sawa can’t take a break from this series! If there is a season 3 do you have any ideas how to bring it back just to keep killing it?
DON MANCINI | We never know! Stay tuned. That’s all I can say officially, but we love it. He’s a great actor and a great guy. I certainly like working with him even though Chucky apparently hates him if you follow their feud on Twitter. Will he continue to be the Jessica Lange of our franchise? I love bringing actors back into different roles and I’ve done that with other actors. As a writer, I like to write things to specific actors. It’s a lot of fun, so fingers crossed.

TVLINE | There have been so many amazing kills this season, including Lexy’s mom in that finale. Do you have a favorite death scene from Season 2?
I think it would be that one and Devon Sawa exploding, à la, Brian De Palma the fury. Nadine’s was the most shocking, and in a way the simplest. We knew it was going to have a big effect on the fanbase, especially since the culprit was Good Chucky there. So that in itself was fun to plan and execute, but when I was a kid I was a huge Brian De Palma fan. I loved the fury – I still to like the fury – and I have already paid homage to it in child’s play 2. We blasted Chucky the exact same way and showed different angles. It was fun doing that with Devon Sawa, and I think it went really well. And also, Barbara Woods, who plays Michelle, her chainsaw… it was pretty brutal!

TVLINE | What happens in the filming of a death like that of Father Bryce or Michelle? How many people does it take on set to create such complex scenes?
It’s very complicated and it affects several departments. In the case of these murders, these two actors had to make full casts of them. So, for that, we rely on this guy named François Dagenais, who does these effects for us from Toronto. He had also worked on Hannibal and String zero. He is brilliant. Then there’s the component of: What are you doing to those bodies? Whether you’re blowing them up or slicing them in half, we bring in our special effects specialist, Jeff Skochko, and he’s amazing. He was involved in both murders. There are [also] some visual effects.

Sometimes the work is devolved to certain units. Devon Sawa’s explosion, I actually have to direct this. It was just a coincidence, the way the schedules worked on both seasons. Towards the end, we have a second simultaneous unit that I lead, so I have to lead the Devon Sawa dummy detonation. It was literally the last thing we did in the whole show. It was around 4:30 a.m. on our last night. We need a town!

The most important thing, or as important as everything else: the actor himself has to make it work and really sell it, and I think both have done that. All actors do. It’s always such a weird thing to ask an actor to go, “Give me a good death.” For some people it’s fun and easy, and for others it’s hard and sometimes puts them in a weird state of mind. It may be harder than it looks.

Chucky season 2 finaleTVLINE | Following the shooting and Glen’s coma, Glen and Glenda’s souls were put back inside the Glen doll [voiced by Billy Boyd]. Does Lachlan Watson [who plays Glen/Glenda] really gone for good, and now that the new GG has left for England, what can you say about his future in the series?
I like Lachlan. I loved working with them and would like to work with them more in the future. I also like working with Billy Boyd. It was great to have him back for this scene as GG. The characters/now the character of Glen, Glen/Glenda and now GG are very important to me. I wanted to set up a situation at the end of the season where we could think, “Oh, there’s more to say here in this ongoing family saga.” If we get a season 3, I hope to dig deeper into this story.

TVLINE | Tiffany and Chucky have had quite the relationship over the years. In the finale, she lets Lexy chop him into pieces. Do they love each other more or do they just want them to die at this point? And how fun is it to play with that dynamic?
It’s great to play with that dynamic. I think like in any passionate relationship, there are ups and downs. I think so, there is a part of them that still loves each other. Tiffany, even in Season 1 for a while, she’s been doing her bidding a bit. I think she’s the most vulnerable in this relationship, because she’s the one who usually took all the shit, and so it was interesting to put her on the offensive against him. It’s great fun to play with that dynamic and evolve it in different ways, and use it as a metaphor for any romantic relationship that has its ups and downs. But with them, there is collateral damage… a lot collateral damage!

Chucky season 2 finaleTVLINE | Watching Jennifer Tilly on this show is an absolute delight. Seems like she’s always ready to poke fun at herself, including that “What would Jennifer do?” final line. When you and the writers are working, do you stop and think, “Is this too far? Should we check with Jen? or is she still totally gone?
She is generally ready for anything and often pushes me to go even further. When I was writing Seed of Chucky, we originally planned to make the character of Jennifer Tilly much more problematic, much less traditionally likable on the first draft. But the studio kind of said, “That’s the main role, we have to make her a little more likable.” But she’s pretty much ready for anything. On Seed of Chucky, something she objected to, there’s a moment when Jennifer vomits into her purse – which is a manifestation of her morning sickness, although she doesn’t know it yet – and she was reluctant to do so. do, as I understand. An actor wants to maintain her glamor quotient or whatever, but in the end she let me convince her. I just had to assure him it wasn’t going to be messy. She has just vomited very discreetly and like a lady in her purse. I think what really sold her was that we had a purse with her face on it, so even Jennifer knew, “OK, that’s kind of funny.” [Laughs]

TVLINE | I would be remiss if I didn’t ask about Kyle and Andy. They both survived near-fatal encounters with Chucky yet again, but they didn’t show up in the finale. At the end of 207, it seems they believe Chucky is finally done for. Is it possible that they… leave at sunset and live the rest of their lives in blissful ignorance?
What would you like as a fan? Do you want them back or do you want them up at sunset?

Chucky season 2 finaleTVLINE | It’s tricky because if they come back, they could potentially be killed, and I don’t know if I want that! But you do such a good job of balancing the storylines between classic characters and newbies. How hard is it to do that when you have decades of legacy to contend with?
It’s hard, but that’s also part of the fun. This is what TV media is. It’s juggling various characters and relationships, and lighting some fuses early on to burn and blow later in the season. As a storyteller, I really enjoy doing that, so that’s part of what you’re talking about. It’s tough, but it’s our job, and I have a terrific team of writers and fellow directors to help me pull it off.

TVLINE | Considering everything she’s been through, I loved the ending with Nica seeking revenge on Tiffany. What can you tease about Nica’s future journey?
She declared war on Tiffany. Since she’s a good sportswoman, she says, “OK, I’ll give you a head start because I love your child. They helped me get out of your prison, but I’m still going to torture you and kill you. I always intended to put Nica in the wringer for a while so she could come out on the other side a bigger and more surprising badass than ever. And I like the idea of ​​doing that with a disabled character, and setting it up that way. And his disability isn’t going to stop him for an inch or a moment.

Denmark reignites European dispute with FIFA over World Cup https://dhinc.org/denmark-reignites-european-dispute-with-fifa-over-world-cup/ Wed, 23 Nov 2022 14:14:03 +0000 https://dhinc.org/denmark-reignites-european-dispute-with-fifa-over-world-cup/

European football once again showed its public frustration with FIFA President Gianni Infantino on Wednesday at the World Cup – this time in Denmark’s camp.

Denmark has pledged not to vote for Infantino, who is running unopposed for re-election in March. Danish Football Association president Jesper Møller has also hinted that he wants to withdraw from FIFA membership.

“I thought about it,” Møller told Danish media in Qatar. “I imagine there could be challenges if Denmark withdraws on their own. But let’s see if we can’t have a dialogue. Denmark’s problems with the FIFA president predate the World Cup,” Møller said, member of the UEFA executive committee, but tensions with Europe have intensified in recent days.

Infantino used a press conference on the eve of the tournament to chastise European society and media for what he called hypocrisy in their criticism of World Cup hosts Qatar.

FIFA’s threats to show captains yellow cards for wanting to wear an unauthorized armband as part of the ‘One Love’ anti-discrimination campaign sent seven European teams down on Monday hours before three were due to play matches .

It was an unprecedented dispute at a World Cup pitting FIFA against players on the day of preparation for one of the biggest matches of their careers.

At the German camp, officials said on Tuesday they were considering taking legal action against FIFA’s tactics in the Court of Arbitration for Sport. The court said no appeal has yet been filed.

“We have to respond to it,” Møller said. ”We will get there with the other countries. We’re in this together.” Denmark also annoyed FIFA and Qatar with a team shirt design that drew attention to dissatisfaction with the host country’s human rights record. man and treatment of migrant workers The team has a third option of a black jersey, chosen as the “mourning color” for workers who died in Qatar.

During Denmark’s opener on Tuesday, former Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt wore a rainbow armband to protest Qatar’s record on LGBTQ rights. Møller and Infantino also attended the match, which ended in a 0–0 draw.

Infantino claimed over the weekend that he was backed by more than 200 of FIFA’s 211 member federations to stand for re-election. Denmark and Germany have publicly declared that they will not vote for him.

The deadline for candidates was Nov. 16, days before members meet in Doha on Sunday, and no rival provided the five valid pledges of support required to run. The election meeting is March 16 in Kigali, Rwanda.

Infantino was a longtime member of UEFA staff and became its general secretary when he was elected in 2016 to head FIFA. His presidency saw several disputes with former European colleagues over football policy issues and he lived in Qatar before the World Cup while working more closely with Africa.

MLB Rumors: Aaron Judge to Meet Giants This Week; Yankees check Jacob deGrom https://dhinc.org/mlb-rumors-aaron-judge-to-meet-giants-this-week-yankees-check-jacob-degrom/ Tue, 22 Nov 2022 15:11:00 +0000 https://dhinc.org/mlb-rumors-aaron-judge-to-meet-giants-this-week-yankees-check-jacob-degrom/

While there may be a small flurry of movement here during Major League Baseball’s offseason, Thanksgiving is looming in a few days and that means it’s likely going to be a slow week. Still, very few free agents have signed and most of the big names who would be on the trading block have so far not been dealt with. That means we’re bound to see a slew of rumors this week.

Let’s take stock of the latest rumours.

Judge to meet giants

Outfielder Aaron Judge has arrived in San Francisco and is expected to meet the Giants on Tuesday, according to MLB.com. Judge, a native of Northern California, was ranked by CBS Sports as the best free agent available this offseason. Here’s what we wrote back then:

Here is the most menacing judge of this side of Cormac McCarthy’s work. It doesn’t matter what men think of WAR, but Judge has amassed more during the pandemic era than any player except Shohei Ohtani, according to Baseball-Reference calculations. How could he not have it? It hits for average; he walks; he hits for power (obscure fact: he broke the American League single-season home run record); and he has one of the strongest outfield arms in the majors. The Yankees even used him at center for most of the season, a nod to his athleticism. The blows against Judge remain the same as in the spring, when he rejected a seven-year extension offer worth $213.5 million: 1) he’s on the wrong side of 30 (he’ll be 31 in April) and 2) he’s had his share of injuries. So the biggest number on Judge’s stat sheet might not be 62 but rather 152, or his average number of games played over the last two years.

A reunion doesn’t necessarily mean anything, but industry insiders expected the Giants to be among the top potential suitors for Judge. We’ll see if anything else favors between the sides.

Yankees check deGrom?

The Yankees have requested medical information on Jacob deGrom, according to SNY, although the report contains the caveat that this does not necessarily mean the Yankees will pursue deGrom in free agency. It appears to be simply a request for due diligence.

The Yankees’ top priority this offseason remains the return of Aaron Judge. Until then, they will likely continue to work as backup, contingency plans they hope will not be needed.

DeGrom, 34, has been one of baseball’s best pitchers since his debut in 2014 and has been outrageously good since the start of 2018 (2.05 ERA, 0.87 WHIP, 876K, 645 1/3 IP), but arm injuries have weathered him 26 starts over the past two seasons combined.

In addition to Dishesthe brave and Rangers were also mentioned as suitors for Grom. I will speculatively add the Dodgerstoo.

Bellinger wants a one-year contract

Considering he’s a former MVP and only 27 years old, it might surprise some to hear that Cody Bellinger is up for a one-year free agency deal. This is exactly the case, reports Ken Rosenthal of The Athleticquoting Bellinger’s agent, Scott Boras.

“I’ve been offered several years already,” Boras said. “Most likely, because of his age, we don’t want a multi-year.”

The rationale here is that Bellinger and Boras believe the 2020 shoulder injury persisted into 2021 and affected his performance even in 2022. They would like a one-year deal to rebuild value before hitting free agency for a large salary on a long-term contract. , then.

It was quite a race for Bellinger. He won MVP in 2019 with the Dodgers, then played through a separated shoulder for part of 2020. He underwent surgery to repair it in November of that year. He then hit .165/.240/.302 in 95 games in 2021 and .210/.265/.389 in 144 last season. The Dodgers didn’t offer him Friday, sending him to free agency.

There’s already been a ton of reported interest in Bellinger. Even if the Dodgers didn’t want to retain him — which seems like a red flag, on the face of it — he’s a more center-field defender who can also handle first base. He also runs the bases well, so even if he doesn’t hit, he could be useful to many teams. He’s also not that far off from hitting .305/.406/.629 with 47 home runs and 115 RBIs in his MVP campaign.

The blue jays are among the teams that have shown interest in Bellinger, reports Jon Morosi of MLB.com. The Cubs are another Bellinger-related team, through athletics.

Three teams interested in Haniger

Free agent outfielder Mitch Haniger has spent the overwhelming majority of his major league career with the sailors and a return there remains a possibility. There are also other suitors. The Rogues, angels and the Rangers are in talks with Haniger, according to Morosi.

Haniger turns 32 next season and he has shown a major attacking advantage when he has been able to stay on the pitch. He had 39 homers and 100 RBIs in 2021 and he has 126 OPS+ in 530 games for Seattle. Of course, he only played 63 games in 2019, missed 2020 and managed just 57 games last season. Interested teams will need to balance his offensive capabilities with his durability issues.

D-Backs could face strength

As noted in Rosenthal’s column to The Athletic, the Diamondbacks have four left-handed centre-backs in Corbin Carroll, Daulton Varsho, Alek Thomas and Jake McCarthy. As such, they are open for business to swap any of them.

First off, don’t worry, D-Backs fans: Carroll is banned. The 22-year-old former first-rounder is someone they are looking to build around.

Varsho is also unlikely to be moved on, especially since he can also play catcher.

This leaves Thomas and McCarthy as trade tokens.

Thomas, 22, hit .231/.275/.344 as a rookie last season, but there’s more upside there and he’s a great defenseman. McCarthy hit .283 / .342 / .427 (1,118 OPS+) with 23 stolen bases and 2.4 WAR in 99 games last season, finishing fourth in NL Rookie of the Year voting.

If the D-Backs deal with Thomas and/or McCarthy, they would be looking for right-handed power and big league-ready pitching.

Pokemon Scarlet and Violet Top UK Charts to Become Biggest Boxed Video Game Launch of 2022 https://dhinc.org/pokemon-scarlet-and-violet-top-uk-charts-to-become-biggest-boxed-video-game-launch-of-2022/ Mon, 21 Nov 2022 15:11:51 +0000 https://dhinc.org/pokemon-scarlet-and-violet-top-uk-charts-to-become-biggest-boxed-video-game-launch-of-2022/

Pokemon is a franchise that needs no introduction, and its recent Pokemon Scarlet and Violet have not only surpassed the biggest names in the industry, including Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 and FIFA 23, but holds also the best selling boxed game title of 2022. Gotta sell them all more.

Since Nintendo’s digital sales are not made public, the sales figures cover the game’s physical release and, in terms of units sold, Scarlet and Violet surpass Pokemon Sword and Shield by 25% to become the second largest. all-time Pokemon launch, behind only behind the Sun and Moon. Additionally, Scarlet and Violet also generated more revenue thanks in part to an increase in RRP, and sales are 4% higher than the previous number one spot holder, FIFA 23. Phew!

That’s not all. Due to the franchise’s popularity, Nintendo Switch hardware also saw a welcome boost, with Switch sales led by the OLED model hitting 62% week-over-week, making it the biggest week of sales for the console so far. Unprecedented.

pokemon-scarlet-and-purple-switch-oled
The limited-edition Pokemon Scarlet and Violet OLED console bundle also contributed significantly to hardware sales.

As it stood, the Violet version accounted for 52% of sales, Scarlet 42%, and the dual pack accounted for the remaining 6%. Although we can’t say for sure, many hardcore Pokemon fans have been known to purchase additional physical copies to add to their collection and may have contributed to the high sales figures. We all know the guy who keeps pristine, unboxed “first edition” versions of games as a hobby. Everyone to his own tastes.

As for the boxed charts, data firm GfK shows that as of November 20, Violet takes pole position while Scarlet is in second place ahead of FIFA 23 in third. Filling out the top five, former number one GoW Ragnarok lands at number four, and finally everyone’s favorite FPS, CoD: Modern Warfare 2, sits at number five instead.

Despite what looks like a big payday for Game Freak and Nintendo, user reviews on Metacritic are unfavorable with a disappointing overall score of 2.9. While next-gen takes a step in the right direction in terms of open-world design and gameplay, the underlying issues of poor performance and technical issues seem to outweigh the positives.

To be fair, we’re in the world of “patch it later” releases, so improvements and fixes should be coming soon. Not to mention that the Nintendo Switch was launched in 2017, and even then it wasn’t considered that powerful compared to the last generation consoles. One has to wonder, with aging hardware directly affecting overall gaming performance in an increasing number of titles lately, when will Nintendo unveil Switch 2?

‘Quordle’ today: See every ‘Quordle’ answer and advice for November 20 https://dhinc.org/quordle-today-see-every-quordle-answer-and-advice-for-november-20/ Mon, 21 Nov 2022 04:05:55 +0000 https://dhinc.org/quordle-today-see-every-quordle-answer-and-advice-for-november-20/

Sunday Quordes are, all things considered, the most relaxing Quordes of all. For most of us, Sunday is the time when we are furthest from the work week, and Sunday comes with a rich tradition of lounging at home, slowly reading the newspaper and doing riddles. An extra hard puzzle can be an added bonus, but it can also add frustration to an otherwise enjoyable day.

Whether Quordle is a little too difficult today, you’ve come to the right place for hints. There are not just clues here, but the whole Quordle the solution. Scroll to the bottom of this page, and there it is. But are you sure you need all four answers? Maybe you just need a strategy guide. Either way, scroll down and you’ll get what you need.

What is Quordle?

Quordle is a five-letter word game similar to wordle, except that each guess applies letters to four words at the same time. You get nine guesses instead of six for correctly guessing all four words. Looks like playing four wordle games at the same time, and that’s basically what it is. But it’s not as intimidating as it sounds.

East Quordle more difficult than Wordle?

Yes, but not diabolically.

Where does Quordle comes from?

In the middle of the wordle boom of late 2021 and early 2022, when everyone was learning to love free, in-browser, once-a-day guessing games, creator Freddie Meyer says he was inspired by one of first big wordle variants, Dordle — the one where you essentially play two Words immediately. He took things up a notch and released Quordle on January 30. Meyer’s creation was covered in The Guardian six days later, and now, according to Meyer, it attracts millions of daily users. Today, Meyer earns a modest income from Patreon, where dedicated Quordle fans can donate to keep their favorite puzzle game running.

How is Quordle pronounced?

“Kwordle.” It should rhyme with “Wordle” and certainly shouldn’t be pronounced exactly like “quail”.

East Quordle strategy different from wordle?

Yes and no.

Your starting strategy should be the same as with wordle. In fact, if you have a favorite wordle opening word, there’s no reason to change that here. We suggest something vowel-rich, with common letters like C, R, and N. But you do.

After your first guess, however, you’ll notice things spiraling out of control if you play Quordle exactly like wordle.

What should I do in Quordle that I don’t do in wordle?

solve a wordle The puzzle can be boiled down to a series of single letter change variations. If you narrowed it down to “-IGHT”, you can guess “MIGHT” “NIGHT” “LIGHT” and “SIGHT” and one of them will probably be the answer – although this is also a famous way to end up losing wordle, especially if you play in “hard mode”. In Quordlehowever, this type of single-letter winnowing is a death trap, and it hints at the important strategic difference between wordle and Quordle: In Quordleyou can’t afford to waste guesses unless you eliminate as many letters as possible at all times.

Guessing a completely random word you already know isn’t the answer, just to eliminate three or four possible letters you haven’t tried yet is considered a desperate and irreversible move. wordle. In Quordlehowever, it is a normal part of the player’s set of strategic tools.

Is there a way to get the answer faster?

In my experience Quordle can be a slow game, sometimes dragging longer than it takes to play wordle four times. But a kind of brutal guesswork approach can speed things up. The following strategy also works with wordle if you just want the solution, and don’t care about having as few guesses as possible:

Try starting with a series of words that put all the vowels (including Y) on the board, along with other common letters. We had luck with the three words: “NOTES”, “ACRID” and “LUMPY”. YouTuber DougMansLand suggests four words: “CANOE”, “SKIRT”, “PLUMB” and “FUDGY”.

Most of the alphabet is now eliminated and you will only have the chance to make one or two wrong guesses if you use this strategy. But in most cases, you’ll have all the information you need to guess the remaining words without any mistakes.

If the strategy doesn’t help and you’re still confused, here are some tips:

Are there double or triple letters in the today Quordle words?

Two words have letters appearing twice.

Are there any rare letters used today Quordle like Q or Z?

No.

what today Quordle the words start with ?

W, F, C and B.

What are the answers for today Quordle?

Are you sure you want to know?

There is still time to turn back.

OK, you asked for it. The answers are:

  1. SHOUT

  2. CELLO

  3. DEVIL

  4. BULKY

Among the categories is the “Content Creator of the Year” award, with Karl Jacobs, Ludwig, QTCinderella, Nibellion and Nobru potentially bringing it home this year.

As Ludwig and QTCindrella have been a couple for a few years now, many in the community assumed they would vote for each other – but it seems that wasn’t the case for this event.

QT hasn’t announced who they’re voting for yet, but we’ll be sure to let you know if they do before the December 8 event.

Alex Hales reprimanded by CDC for old ‘blackface’ photo https://dhinc.org/alex-hales-reprimanded-by-cdc-for-old-blackface-photo/ Thu, 17 Nov 2022 05:37:43 +0000 https://dhinc.org/alex-hales-reprimanded-by-cdc-for-old-blackface-photo/

England striker Alex Hales has been reprimanded by the Cricket Disciplinary Committee (CDC) for an old photo of him wearing a ‘black face’, which was published in a national newspaper last year. Hales had issued a public apology when the photo was published by The Sun last year. According to Sky Sports, the image was apparently taken in 2009 when the hitter was 20 at a New Years Eve party.

According to ESPNCricinfo, during the investigation, Hales questioned the need for “repeated publication of these old questions”, but arbitrator Chris Tickle ruled that “the interests of transparency should prevail”. According to the Cricket Council of England and Wales, the CDC is a body operating at arm’s length from the council and hears disciplinary cases in the domestic professional game in England and Wales.

In August this year, Hales was charged with breaching ECB Directive 3.3, which states: “No such person shall conduct himself in a manner or do any act or omission which might be detrimental to the interests of the cricket or which might bring the game of cricket or any cricketer or group of cricketers into disrepute.” Hales acknowledged the charge and told the CDC he had taken steps “to ensure that the photo could not be linked to any of his social media accounts” in 2015 and 2017.

According to the CDC report, the ECB argued that Hales’ breaches of its guidelines in 2018, primarily relating to the 2017 street fight in Bristol, should be considered “an aggravating factor”, but Tickle was not d ‘OK. “None of these offenses were related to discriminatory behavior,” he wrote. “They were totally different. Plus, they happened about eight years after the breach in this case. It would be different if it was a repeat offense, with Hales not having learned his lesson. In time of the events – 2009 – he had no criminal record, it was his first offense and should be treated as such.

The hitter has already been investigated, warned by his county of Nottinghamshire and he questioned the need for “more airtime” on the subject, according to the CDC report. “I have taken this into account but consider that the interests of transparency must prevail,” Tickle wrote. “I order this decision to be released to emphasize that such a social media post, historic as it is, will not be tolerated,” he added.

According to Sky Sports, prior to his recall for the series against Pakistan and the T20 World Cup this year, Hales had not played for England since 2019 due to off-field issues. He had tested positive for recreational drugs ahead of the 2019 Cricket World Cup, leading to his omission from the squad and a ‘complete breakdown of trust’ with then-white ball captain Eoin Morgan . Hales must have watched England lift their first-ever World Cup aged 50 from the touchline. However, the burly hitter was recalled to the T20I national team for the Pakistan Series and T20 WC in September, replacing an injured Jonny Bairstow. Also, with Jason Roy overlooked due to his long stint with the bat, Hales’ buyout offer thinned out.

The hitter repaid the trust the selectors placed in him, scoring 53 on his return. Since then, Hales has played 15 T20Is for England in 2022, having scored 430 runs at an average of 30.71 and a strike rate of 145.27. He produced four half-centuries, his best being an unbeaten 86 against India in the T20 World Cup semi-finals. In the tournament, the Englishman produced some great shots. In six games, he totaled 212 carries at an average of 42.20. He scored two 50s, with a best of 86* against India. He finished as the tournament’s eighth-best run-getter. Hales was England’s second best run-getter in the tournament behind Jos Buttler (225 runs). (ANI)
