South Africa all-rounder David Wiese will link up with Sussex for two of their NatWest T20 Blast games next week.
The 31-year-old has signed a short-term deal to play a pair of games at Hove, against Somerset on June 1 and Surrey two days later.
Wiese has been a regular in South Africa's Twenty20 side over the last year, and was part of their squad for the World Twenty20 in India earlier in 2016.
He said: "I am really excited to be joining Sussex and taking part in the NatWest T20 Blast campaign.
"I have always wanted to play County Cricket and from speaking to Chris Jordan here in the IPL and my discussions with Mark Davis, I have heard a lot of very good things about the club."
Head coach Davis added: "It's great to have David joining us fresh from the IPL. He is an accomplished cricketer in T20, having played a key role for South Africa in the format.
"He can bowl at any stage of the innings, and is a hard-hitting batsman, which makes him a valuable cricketer and we look forward to him being an asset to us whilst he is here at Hove."
