Surrey have announced that Kumar Sangakkara will stay at the county next season after agreeing a new one-year contract.
The former Sri Lanka captain, 39, has signed an extension at The Oval to keep him at the county until 2017.
Sangakkara retired from international cricket in 2015 having recorded more than 28,000 runs across all formats, with a Test average of 57.40.
He has been with County Championship side Surrey for the past two seasons and will now play at least one more year after penning the new deal.
The statement on Surrey's official twitter account read: "Surrey CCC are very pleased to announce that Kumar Sangakkara has signed a new one-year contract for the 2017 season."
