Nottinghamshire batsman James Taylor believes team-mate Alex Hales is a "special" talent.

Hales hit 99 for England in the Twenty20 international against the West Indies at Trent Bridge on Sunday - the highest score by an Englishman in the shortest form of the game.

Taylor told BBC Radio Nottingham: "We all know what talent he has got.

"To represent your country you have to be a decent player, but Alex is a special player."
