Sussex have announced West Indies all-rounder Dwayne Smith will return to Hove as their second overseas player for their FL t20 campaign.

The 30-year-old previously featured for the county between 2008 and 2010.

Sussex cricket manager Mark Robinson said: "Dwayne has the ability to win games by himself with the bat.

"He is [also] a more than useful bowler and he is one of the best fielders ever seen at Hove. Everybody is excited about his return."

Smith, who bowls right-arm medium, featured in all three formats of the game and won three one-day trophies during his time on the south coast.

He was part of the side that won the Pro40 League in 2008, before helping Sussex retain that trophy the following year and also lift the Twenty20 Cup.

The Barbados-born player is currently representing Mumbai Indians in the Indian Premier League.

Smith and New Zealand all-rounder Scott Styris will be Sussex's overseas players for the tournament after Australia bowler John Hastings had to withdraw through injury.
