Surrey have signed Australia all-rounder Moises Henriques for this summer's NatWest T20 Blast.

Henriques will join Surrey immediately after the Indian Premier League season concludes at the end of next month and will be with them throughout their Blast campaign and also as overseas cover for Kumar Sangakkara depending on his Test commitments in the second half of the summer.

Henriques, 28, capped by his country in all formats but not selected for the forthcoming Ashes, said: ``I'm really looking forward to playing for Surrey this season. It's a club with a proud history and an exciting squad.

``I've seen some of the names that are coming to England to be involved in the NatWest T20 Blast this summer, so am looking forward to testing myself against some of the best players in the world.''
