Exciting Hales has X-factor - Buttler

England vice captain Jos Buttler says Alex Hales has the "X-factor" and believes the batsman is an "exciting" player to watch.

Hales has so far been left on the sidelines, but is tipped to play against Bangladesh on Monday with Gary Balance struggling in the tournament.

England, who have lost three of their four group games, must beat Bangladesh and Afghanistan if they are to stand any chance of reaching the World Cup quarter-finals.

Listen to BBC Radio 5 live commentary of England v Bangladesh from 03:15 GMT on Monday 9th March.
