Surrey have signed the South African opening batsman Jacques Rudolph for the start of the domestic season.

Rudolph, 30, excelled previously in county cricket for Yorkshire, averaging 52.20 in more than 68 matches for the county. He will become newly-promoted Surrey's overseas player for the start of the campaign, filling in for the Indian left-arm spinner Murali Kartik, who will arrive after the IPL to play for the remainder of the season.
