Surrey have signed hard-hitting Australia batsman Nic Maddinson as their second overseas player for this summer's Vitality Blast.

Maddinson, who has played two Twenty20 internationals and three Tests, will join his compatriot Aaron Finch at The Oval after both have completed their forthcoming Australia tour commitments.

Left-hander Maddinson is in Australia's squad for the one-off Twenty20 against England at the end of this month. Finch will captain the Australia T20 team and is also set for a key role throughout the full tour of England, which includes five one-day internationals.

The 26-year-old Maddinson said: "I very much look forward to playing with Surrey during this year's Vitality Blast season.

"It's a fabulous opportunity to play at a great sporting organisation such as Surrey County Cricket Club and with my Australian counterpart Aaron Finch ... let's hope I can help Surrey win the title."
