Ravi Rampaul in action for West Indies
Surrey have further bolstered their bowling attack ahead of the new county season with the signing of former West Indies international Ravi Rampaul on a two-year deal.
The 31-year-old, who played 18 Tests, 92 one-day internationals and 23 Twenty20s for the Windies, follows young South African pacemen Conor McKerr and Mathew Pillans through the door at the Oval in recent weeks.
Director of cricket Alec Stewart told Surrey’s official website: “Ravi will add experience to our seam bowling attack and we look forward to him joining the squad.”
Surrey also confirmed that former England paceman Jade Dernbach is facing a lengthy spell on the sidelines with a back problem.
A statement on the club’s website read: “Following a scan on his injured back earlier this week, Jade Dernbach is due to have more diagnostic testing in six weeks time.
“It is then hoped that he will return to cricket specific rehabilitation.”
