Watch Alex Hales whack a six straight through the window of the commentary box

Luckily, the pundits escaped unscathed.


If you wanted any more proof that Alex Hales is well and truly a big hitter, look no further.

Playing for Nottingham at the One-Day Cup match against Durham at Trent Bridge, Hales’ aim is nothing short of impeccable as the ball sails straight through the window of the BBC commentary box.

Thankfully, the window was open, so the stadium is spared some costly repairs. And don’t worry, the One-Day Cup said on its Twitter that no commentators were hurt in the incident.

Such an incredible shot was appreciated by the fans – and in the most British of ways.

And if you wanted a bit more Hales in your life, take a look at some of his greatest hits from today (if you’ll pardon the pun).

All eyes on where he sends one of his sixes next.
