The other half of the English duo that will be donning the magenta over the summer is 25-year old Sam Billings.
Billings has already represented England in both ODI and T20I with some success.
He has represented Islamabad in the Pakistan Super League where he was team mate to fellow Sydney Sixer Brad Haddin.
Playing with the Sixers as a specialist batsman, Billings brings an expansive, inventive and exciting style to the magenta boys.
For those impatient Sixers fans that can't wait to see Billings play we advise you to check out his 52 against Pakistan in 2015, where he brought up his half ton in just 24 balls with some imaginative ramp shots the picks of the bunch.
Sam is an all-round sportsman playing racquets, football and rugby. Cricket is lucky to have him!
