12:20 pm on 3 February 2012

The former Black Cap Scott Styris has signed to play for Sussex in the English County cricket Twenty20 competition.

Sussex is the fourth English side for the 36-year-old, who has previously played for Durham, Middlesex and Essex.

Styris retired from international cricket soon after the 2011 World Cup, ending a New Zealand career that spanned 188 ODIs and 31 Twenty20 internationals.

He also played 29 Tests, the last of them in 2007.

Styris played for Northern Districts this summer.
