London:England A batsman Kadeer Ali has left his English county Worcestershire for neighbouring Gloucestershire in a bid to secure regular first XI cricket and boost his chances of promotion to the full Test side.

The 21-year-old, a cousin of England bowler Kabir Ali, turned down the offer of a new two-year contract at Worcester, where he was displaced from the side by Stephen Moore.

"Obviously, it is sad to be leaving Worcestershire after five years but I feel it is now time for me to move on," he said.

Gloucestershire player-coach Mark Alleyne said he expected great things from the youngster. "He has great talent and I intend to create an environment in which he can exploit fully his talent," he said.
