Alex Hales has been signed by Durban Heat for this autumn's Mzansi Super League competition. 

Hales is set to join compatriots Jason Roy (Nelson Mandela Bay Giants), David Willey (Paarl Rocks) and Tom Curran (Tshwane Spartans) in South Africa for the latest instalment of the T20 competition. 

Other marquee names announced for the tournament include the likes of Chris Gayle, Andile Phehlukwayo and AB De Villiers. 

The opener has notched 207 runs for the Outlaws in the Vitality Blast so far this season, including two fifties, while scoring at a strike rate of 140.54.

The 30-year-old has also been acquired by Barbados Tridents for this autumn's Caribbean Premier League.

The Mzansi Super League is due to get underway in November for a month, however the exact dates are yet to be confirmed. 


There are three further opportunities to catch the Outlaws in T20 action at Trent Bridge this summer, with the next home game under the lights against Derbyshire Falcons on Friday 16 August.
