Henriques retuns to Surrey and puts horror behind him

Moises Henriques is heading back to Surrey this summer two years after his first spell at the county ended in disturbing fashion after only three appearances because of a serious jaw injury.

Henriques suffered with a broken jaw in three places, and required three bouts of surgery after a jarring collision in the field with his Surrey team-mate Rory Burns in a NatWest T20 Blast game against Sussex at Arundel. But Henriques, who has underlined his full recovery by extending his Australia career in all three formats, has said he has "unfinished business" with the county.

The allrounder will once again play in the domestic T20 competition, providing cover while former Sri Lanka batsman Kumar Sangakkara competes in the Caribbean Premier League.

He told Surrey's official website: "I'm really happy to be returning to Surrey, a great club where I really enjoyed myself in 2015.

"As well as feeling like I've got a bit of unfinished business, the NatWest T20 Blast is well established as one of the top T20 competitions in the world and I'm really looking forward to playing against some of the world's best cricketers in front of sold out London crowds at the Kia Oval."

Henriques joins his fellow Australian Aaron Finch, who will be available for the entirety of the competition, while Surrey further swelled their batting ranks earlier this month by re-signing Kevin Pietersen.
