Jason Behrendorff has played seven T20 internationals for Australia

Australia seamer Jason Behrendorff has joined Sussex Sharks for their last four T20 Blast group matches.

The 29-year-old has previously worked with coach Jason Gillespie and played in this summer's World Cup, taking 10 wickets in five games.

Behrendorff will be available for the T20 quarter-finals if Sussex qualify.

"I can't wait to be part of the Sharks. It's a great opportunity and one I feel very fortunate to take on," he told the club website.

Gillespie added: "He's got a fine record, swings the new ball in the powerplay and can bowl at the death as well if required."

Left-armer Behrendorff has played 11 one-day internationals for Australia, taking five wickets in their World Cup group-stage win over England.

Sussex need bowling cover with Tymal Mills out injured, Rashid Khan leaving the club and Reece Topley still returning to full fitness.
