Surrey boosted by Razzaq signing

Surrey have announced the signing of Pakistan all-rounder Abdul Razzaq.

Razzaq, 28, joins the Brown Caps on a short-term deal for the remainder of their Twenty20 Cup campaign, starting from Friday against Kent at the Oval.

Surrey coach Alan Butcher told BBC London 94.9: "He's an experienced international cricketer and has always been known for his dynamic output.

"Twenty20 suits his style of play down to a tee and we felt that we needed some of the skills he can provide."

Razzaq will replace Surrey's current overseas player Matthew Nicholson for the three week Twenty20 Cup period in June.

Butcher added: "The Pakistani cricketers have proved very adept with hitting the ball out of the park in the latter stages of innings, bowling slower balls, reverse swing and Razzaq is someone who brings that to the game."

Razzaq previously played for both Middlesex and Worcestershire.
