Balcombe fills in for Kent
Kent have signed Hampshire seamer David Balcombe on a one-month loan and he could go straight into the side to face Surrey in the LV= County Championship tomorrow.
The 26-year-old, who has not played a senior game for Hampshire this season, made his county debut in 2005 and has taken 72 first-class wickets at an average of 39 plus 10 List A wickets at 38.
Balcombe said: "I am really pleased to be joining Kent for this period, and look forward to the opportunity to represent the county and contribute to success for the club.”
Kent team director Paul Farbrace added: "We are really pleased that the deal has been agreed with Hampshire and we now hope that David will do very well for Kent. We have added him to the squad for the championship game against Surrey, starting tomorrow.”
