Cape Town - Proteas batsman JP Duminy will join English county side Surrey as their overseas player later this year.

According to the Sky Sports website, Duminy will replace former Australia captain Ricky Ponting.

Duminy, 29, will join Surrey in August and will be available for six County Championship matches as well as the end of the Yorkshire Bank40 and Friends Life T20 competitions.

Surrey started their current season with Graeme Smith as their overseas player, but he was ruled out for the rest of the season by an ankle injury which required surgery.

Duminy, who recently returned to the Proteas fold after a long-term Achilles injury, will link up with the Division One side at the end of South Africa's tour of Sri Lanka, which concludes with a T20 game on August 6.

He is currently in the UK playing for South Africa in the ICC Champions Trophy event.
