ENGLAND Twenty20 record-breaker Alex Hales has joined Worcestershire on a month's loan from Nottinghamshire as cover for Moeen Ali in the LV= County Championship.

Hales will link up with the Division Two table-toppers after Moeen was named in the England squad for next Friday's one-day international with Scotland in Aberdeen.

England are also set to play Sri Lanka in five ODI's and one Twenty20 international between May 20 and June 3.

Hales became the first England player to score a century in Twenty20 cricket with a brilliant 116 against Sri Lanka in the ICC World tournament in Bangladesh in March.
