Reigning champions Sydney Sixers have re-signed England and Nottinghamshire batsman Michael Lumb for next season's Big Bash League.

Lumb: Will play for Sydney Sixers in the Big Bash

Lumb was part of the Sixers side that won the inaugural BBL tournament last season and finished as top run-scorer as they added the Champions League title, finishing with a man-of-the-match performance in the final.

The 32-year-old was a World Twenty20 winner with England in 2010 and returned to the squad for this year's edition, despite not featuring.

Sixers general manager Stuart Clark said: "Lumby was a solid addition to our squad for BBL1 and his form was outstanding in the Champions League, joining with Brad Haddin to win the final at Wanderers.

"He really enjoyed being in Sydney, the lifestyle and being near the beach for a surf last summer so we can't wait to see him back here again."
