Former New Zealand captain Stephen Fleming coaches the team, and all-rounder Scott Styris is also on their playing roster.

"It's good to have (Southee) on board, especially coming out of such a great recent tournament at the World Cup. It's an absolute bonus for us at the moment to be able to get our hands on such a quality player," Stuff.co.nz quoted Rixon, as saying.

"Tim's recent form over there (at the World Cup) indicates that he handles those conditions beautifully," he added.

The 22-year-old took 18 wickets at an average of 17.33 during his team's campaign in the six-week tournament on the Indian sub-continent.
