Jackson Bird returns to the Sydney Sixers in BBL|06 for his second season in the Magenta.
The tall right-arm fast bowler made his Test cricket debut for Australia in 2012.
Following time away from the test side, Bird made his return for the 2016 tour of New Zealand, where a 5-wicket haul in the second test helped Australia secure a series victory.
He was most recently selected in the Australian team for the test series against South Africa.
A Sydney native, Bird was raised on Sydney's Northern Beaches but left New South Wales in 2011 to pursue opportunities in First Class cricket in Tasmania.
His home-coming also makes it a family affair at the Sixers - his brother Ian is the club's photographer!
