ONE OF THE FINEST TOP ORDER BATSMAN IN THE WORLD TODAY, ELGAR IS SURREY’S OVERSEAS PLAYER FOR APRIL AND MAY OF THE 2018 CAMPAIGN.
In his 49 match Test career to date, the 30-year-old has been crucial in South Africa’s recent success in the five-day game.
He averages 42.58 in Test matches and was ranked as the eighth best batsman in the world in the latest ICC rankings before signing for Surrey.
The South African will be available for three Specsavers County Championship matches and five Royal London One-Day Cup clashes before he heads off to prepare for his country’s tour of Sri Lanka.
Elgar is in his second spell at the Kia Oval after playing three matches for Surrey in 2015. In terms of county cricket, he also played for Somerset in 2013 and 2017.
