Summary

  • Cape Town – Proteas opener Dean Elgar looks set to join former team-mate Morne Morkel for a county stint at Surrey.
  • Numerous reports out of England suggest that Elgar will play for Surrey for around six weeks while Australia’s Mitchell Marsh undergoes an operation.
  • This will not have any influence on Elgar’s availability for national selection and he will be a part of the Proteas squad that travels to Sri Lanka for two Tests over July/August.
  • If the short-team move does materialise, it will be the second time that Elgar has enjoyed a stint at Surrey following his time there in 2015.
  • Morkel, meanwhile, has signed a two-year deal with the club following his retirement from all international cricket.
