Brit Insurance Oval hospitality news: Surrey Lions sign Younis Khan
Cricket fans with Brit Insurance Oval hospitality tickets will be able to watch Younis Khan in action over the coming weeks.
The former Pakistan captain has agreed to join the Surrey Lions on a temporary deal which will keep him at the south coast outfit until mid-July.
Khan, a prolific batsman who averages 50.09 in Test cricket, will represent the Lions in all competitions and will be the second international star to represent the county in the Friends Provident Twenty20, alongside Australian Andrew Symonds.
Chris Adams, professional cricket manager at Surrey, expressed confidence that the 32-year-old will prove to be a valuable signing.
"As well as benefiting from the weight of runs we hope he will bring, we have a number of young batsmen who will doubtless benefit greatly from being able to train and play alongside him," he commented.
The batsman has amassed a total of 5,260 runs in the five-day form of the game, as well as 6,197 in limited overs internationals.
