New Delhi: For the world's no 3 best T20 batsman Alex Hales it is a blessing in disguise as he was rejected in the IPL auction earlier this year, but his sensational unbeaten innings of 116 against Sri Lanka in 2014 ICC World T20 made him the first centurion for England in T20 internationals. He became an overnight hero and IPL franchisees must be regretting of losing him.

But having received his maiden call-upon the England ODI squad against India, hard-hitting batsman feels that the IPL snub he got during last edition, helped him turn into a better player.
