Former Sri Lanka captain Mahela Jayawardene has joined the Adelaide Strikers for Big Bash League on a one-year deal as the side's second international signing, with the club now finalising their squad for the upcoming season.

Jayawardene replaces Kieron Pollard after the West Indies international was last month ruled out of the competition when he suffered a knee injury in South Africa's Ram Slam T20 Challenge.

Featuring in more than 600 international matches for Sri Lanka, Jayawardene is widely regarded as one of cricket's modern greats and brings a wealth of experience some serious batting quality to the Strikers' line-up.
