"His addition brings experience, energy and quality to our fast-bowling stocks. I’m sure the Stars fans will enjoy seeing him represent Team Green again in BBL|11," David Hussey said.
Rauf will play his first game on December 27 against the Brisbane Heat and will remain with the team until the end of the season.
