Tait, who now restricts himself to limited overs cricket because of a shoulder injury, is currently playing for Australia in their ongoing one-day series at home to England.

The 27-year-old is set to be available for the entire duration of the tournament including, should Surrey quality, finals day at Edgbaston on August 27.

"This is a pretty exciting move for me," Tait said in a Surrey statement.

"I've a bit of unfinished business in county cricket and I'll be giving it my all for Surrey this year," added the paceman, who briefly appeared for Glamorgan in last year's edition, having previously had a short stint with Durham back in 2004.

"I always strive to take wickets and love being part of a close-knit team.

"Some good reports about how Surrey are shaping up for 2011 have been filtering through, so I'm confident that the team can go a few steps further this year in the event."
