Being raised in Perth, Cameron is returning to Australia in the county cricket off-season to continue his professional development at Waverley Oval.
Steel is a capable leg spinner & able to slot in anywhere in the top order with the bat.
Steel joined Surrey from Durham ahead of the 2021 season on a two-year deal, prior to arriving at Surrey he had played 41 first-class matches, 11 List A games and 6 T20s in his professional career.
After playing for Durham MCCU in 2014, 2015 and 2016, the American-born Steel signed professional terms with Durham in 2017. In his first season he became the youngest double-centurion in Durham history, scoring 224 against Leicestershire.
In 2018, he hit 160 against a high quality Sussex attack including Jofra Archer, Chris Jordan & Ollie Robinson in a match in which no other batsman scored more than 47.
