Sydney Sixers have announced the signing of England and Surrey batsman Jason Roy for the upcoming Big Bash League.

The 26-year-old, previously a former player for the Sixers’ city rivals Sydney Thunder, will feature in the first five matches before he is expected to link up with England’s limited-overs squad for the tour of India.

“I’ve spent quite a bit of time in Sydney, it’s a beautiful place to go and it’s obviously an historical ground,” Roy told the Sixers’ official website.

“To get the opportunity to play at the SCG is obviously a massive ambition of mine and I’m going to be doing it so I’m buzzing.”
