West Indies fast bowler, Kemar Roach has signed with Surrey for the first seven games of the English County Championship season.

Roach will be returning to county cricket after a decade-long absence following a brief spell with Worcestershire towards the end of the 2011 season.

He will fly to the UK after the completion of West Indies’ second Test against Sri Lanka for the season opener on April 8.

Roach will return to the Caribbean after the fixture against Middlesex, which starts on May 20.

“I will like to thank Cricket West Indies for allowing me the opportunity to go back and play county cricket again after a number of years,” he said.
