Perth Scorchers, the reigning title-holders of the Big Bash League, have signed England duo Adam Lyth and Stephen Eskinazi ahead of their opening fixture against Syndey Sixers on Saturday, December 17, at the Optus Stadium.
Eskinazi, the skipper of the Middlesex T20 side, will be available for the whole season, while Lyth and Faf du Plessis, another overseas signing for the Scorchers, will be part of the squad for the first half of the competition due to their commitments in SA20 league and the ILT20 league in UAE.
Perth Scorchers have also added Hamish McKenzie, the left-arm wrist spinner from Western Australia, to bolster their spin bowling department.

Ashton Agar, Cameron Bancroft, Jason Behrendorff, Cooper Connolly, Faf du Plessis, Stephen Eskinazi, Cameron Green, Aaron Hardie, Peter Hatzoglou, Nick Hobson, Josh Inglis, Matt Kelly, Adam Lyth, Hamish McKenzie, Tymal Mills, Lance Morris, Jhye Richardson, Ashton Turner, Andrew Tye
