BBC UK – Surrey have signed South Africa batsman Dean Elgar as an overseas player for the first two months of the season.

Summary

  • Surrey have signed South Africa batsman Dean Elgar as an overseas player for the first two months of the season.
  • Elgar will join the south London side ahead of their opening game against Hampshire on 20 April and will remain until his country’s tour of Sri Lanka.
  • He had a stint with Surrey in 2015, playing three games, and had spells with Somerset in 2013 and 2017.
  • “Given the news that Mitch Marsh will need ankle surgery, to be able to bring someone of Dean’s calibre to the club, at such short notice, for the first period of the season is a real bonus,” Surrey director of cricket Alec Stewart told the club website.
  • “We know Dean well after his time with us in 2015, and his international quality and experience will be a real asset.”
