New Zealand wicketkeeper-batsman Brendon McCullum has signed to play for the Brisbane Heat in Australian Twenty20 tournament Big Bash next summer.

The 29-year-old McCullum, recently overlooked for the New Zealand captaincy, was the second player after West Indies opener Chris Gayle to score an international Twenty20 century, making 116 not out off 58 balls against Australia last year.

Brisbane coach Darren Lehmann said McCullum was a special talent and "will win a couple of games for us, I'm sure."

Gayle has signed to play for the Sydney Thunder while Pakistan's Abdul Razzaq and ShahidAfridi have been signed by the Melbourne Renegades.
