Melbourne: Aug 23, 2014

Sydney Sixers on Saturday announced the signing of West Indian star Dwayne Smith as one of their international players for the upcoming KFC T20 Big Bash League season. Smith’s signing comes after a purple patch of form in the recent Caribbean Premier League (CPL) where he was named in the Team of the Tournament after his Barbados Tridents won the title. The 31-year-old is no stranger to playing Twenty20 cricket in Sydney having been part of the New South Wales team for the original Big Bash tournament in 2009.

“I’m looking forward to playing the games and I’m sure the players will be raring to win the games too. So I hope I can just get out there and put my team in good position or win games for them,” Smith was quoted as saying in the Cricket Australia (CA) website. “I’m sure the pitches will play differently to places like the West Indies, India and other places like Bangladesh that I’ve played before. So I’m raring to get over there and play for the Sixers. “I’m going to come and give it my best and hopefully we can see plenty of sixes when it comes my turn to play for the Sixers.”

Smith, who has played 20 Tests, 91 ODIs and 29 T20s for the West Indies, has been a much-sought after player in Twenty20 leagues around the world. He has played for Chennai Super Kings, Deccan Chargers and Mumbai Indians in the Indian Premier League, Sussex in English county cricket as well as Sylhet Royals and Khulna Royal Bengals in the Bangladesh Premier League.
