Aaron Finch has signed a new two-year deal with Surrey to stay on as one of their Twenty20 overseas players.
The hard-hitting Australia opener has formed a superb partnership with England star Jason Roy over the last two summers at the Kia Oval.
Finch's highlight of his domestic stay in 2017 was a sensational 114 not out off 64 balls against Sussex.
He said: "I'm absolutely thrilled to be back at Surrey. I have enjoyed my time there these past few seasons and am really looking forward to reuniting with the lads and looking forward to a successful summer."
Director of cricket Alec Stewart added: "Aaron is one of the leading T20 batsmen in the game and to have secured his services for a further two seasons is great news.
"His opening partnership with Jason Roy is amongst the most destructive in world cricket and he is now very much an integral part of our dressing room."
