THE Sydney Sixers have made a last minute signing coup just days out from their Big Bash League opener against the Sydney Thunder with Sri Lankan all-rounder Jeevan Mendis to link with the team.

The 29-year-old Twenty20 and 50-over Sri Lankan international will only join the Sixers later this week ahead of Saturday's blockbuster Sydney derby at the SCG, filling the void left by the loss of Pakistani batsman Umar Akmal.

However, it is unlikely Mendis will be able to play in the finals of the Big Bash for the Sixers.

He is expected to be unavailable through Sri Lanka's five-match ODI series against Australia beginning on January 11th  with the Big Bash semi-finals beginning January 15th.
