Kent move for Langeveldt
Kent have bolstered their bowling options for the Friends Life t20 with the signing of South Africa seamer Charl Langeveldt.
The 36-year-old is set to arrive in time to make his debut against Somerset at Tunbridge Wells on Friday, having played three games for eventual runners-up Royal Challengers Bangalore in the Indian Premier League.
“I am really looking forward to my time with Kent and the opportunity to play in the Friends Life t20,” said Langeveldt.
He won six Test, 72 one-day international and nine Twenty caps for his country, most recently against Pakistan in Abu Dhabi last October.
Kent become Langeveldt’s fourth English county, following spells with Somerset, Leicestshire and Derbyshire.
His signing is prompted by Simon Cook's broken thumb, and Dewald Nel's early release from his contract last weeek due to ongoing back trouble.
Director of cricket Paul Farbrace said: “I am delighted that Charl will be playing for Kent. His considerable experience in t20 will give us a boost, and we look forward to welcoming him into the team.”
