South African Graham Ford has been appointed the new head coach of Surrey, the English county side confirmed on Monday. The 52-year-old has signed a three-year deal and will join the club in February when his contract with the Sri Lanka team ends.

He replaces Chris Adams, who was sacked last June after the club was relegated from Division One of the County Championship.

“I am delighted to once again be involved in the English cricketing system,” said Ford. — AFP
