Surrey sign Aaron Finch as cover for Kumar Sangakkara

SURREY will welcome Aaron Finch to the county as cover for Kumar Sangakkara this summer.

Sangakkara is set to play in the Caribbean Premier League and could be absent for up to six weeks from the end of June.

Finch, 29, has previously played for Yorkshire and is expected to make his debut in the Championship game against Warwickshire on July 2. He will be available for all formats.

The Australian said: “This is a great opportunity for me and one I am very much looking forward to. To have the chance to play all forms of the game is a challenge I will relish, as I have ambitions to represent Australia in Test match cricket.

“I’m aware that Surrey have an exciting young squad and I hope I am able to add to their obvious talent.”
