"I’m always looking for new and exciting opportunities. That’s how I see the chance to play with one of the most talented playing groups in county cricket," he said.

"When I heard Alec Stewart had asked after me, it was an easy decision. Surrey are a massive club and it will be great if I can contribute to helping them win another trophy this summer at the Kia Oval."

Surrey director of cricket Stewart said: "Imran is a proven matchwinner and with his vast experience of international, county and franchise cricket will be a huge asset to us."
