Smith lands two-year deal

West Indies batsman Dwayne Smith has signed a two-year deal with Sydney Sixers for the upcoming Big Bash League in December.

“I’m going to come and give it my best and hopefully we can see plenty of sixes when it is my turn to play for the Sixers,” Smith said.

Smith will head into the tournament in sublime form in Twenty20 matches, having played several match-winning innings for two of his teams in recent months.

Smith was the second highest run-scorer in the 2014 Indian Premier League, scoring 566 runs for Chennai Super Kings with five half-centuries.

He carried that form over to Barbados Tridents in the Caribbean Premier League, making 353 runs with two hundreds and a fifty at an average of 44.12. Smith also top-scored with an unbeaten 59 in the rain-affected final against Guyana Amazon Warriors, as Tridents clinched the title with an eight-run victory according to the D/L method.

“Dwayne is a powerful exciting stroke-maker at the top of the order,” Trevor Bayliss, the Sixers coach, said. “He also bowls some handy medium pace and his fielding is top class.” (cricinfo)
