Batsman Joe Denly will spend part of the winter Down Under playing for Sydney Cricket Club ahead of the 2017 season.

The 30-year-old Canterbury-born right-hander made his debut on Sunday in a T20 double-header against Eastern Suburbs and Newcastle DCA.

In the first match, Denly smashed 35 not out off 17 balls to seal a ten-wicket win after claiming a run out and conceding 15 runs in two overs in leg spin.

Among his teammates is Middlesex’s Australian-born leg-spinner Nathan Sowter.
