Ponting played just one match for the Hurricanes last year but helped the team to their maiden win in the BBL. The 37-year-old only managed a quickfire 17 in their victory over the Perth Scorchers, but looks back on the experience fondly.

"I really enjoyed my short time with the Hurricanes last season and being part of the team's first ever win was something I'll never forget," Ponting said.

"The side is coming together really well and I am excited to be part of it all again and can hopefully put in some good performances for the boys."
