Dutch allrounder Ryan ten Doeschate has been signed by Tasmania to play in Australia's Twenty20 Big Bash this season, officials said on Monday.

South African-born ten Doeschate, 30, will join Pakistan's Rana Naved-ul-Hasan as Tasmania's two international players this season, team coach Tim Coyle said.

Coyle said ten Doeschate, a regular with English county Essex, had an impressive record with both bat and ball.

"His credentials suit what we need perfectly," Coyle told reporters.

"He's an attacking, hard-hitting player who clears the boundary regularly, a very handy bowler and an excellent fieldsman."

The Twenty20 Big Bash runs from December 30 to the final on February 5.
