Ricky Ponting to play Twenty20 cricket in Australia
Ponting was with the Hurricanes last season but international commitments reduced his playing time to one match.
The 37-year-old Ponting, who retired from limited-overs cricket after being dropped from the Australian one-day squad in February, is still part of Australia's Test squad.
The Hurricanes, whose lineup includes England's Owais Shah, begin play on December 9 in Brisbane.
Sachin Tendulkar announced his retirement from international cricket after playing his 200th Test in the home series against the West Indies next month.
