SURREY captain Graeme Smith is to miss a "few months" of the season to return to his native South Africa to undergo surgery on an ankle injury.

Despite issues with his ankle caused by a hard winter's cricket, Smith was determined to start his Surrey career on time, but has now accepted the injury will not heal on its own.

Last week, the club's official website revealed: "After scans this afternoon [Wednesday] it has been determined that surgery is required and he will miss a few months of the English County season for Surrey."

Smith said: "To have to head home now, so early in my time at Surrey is very frustrating but I leave the team in a good place and hope to be back with them as soon as possible."

Surrey team director Chris Adams said: "Graeme has made an impressive start as a leader and the squad have really responded to his leadership.

"It's clearly disappointing for all, especially Graeme, but we wish him a speedy recovery."
