South Africa seamer Charl Langeveldt has been signed up by Kent County Cricket Club for the Friends Life t20 tournament that gets underway on June 1. Langeveldt is expected to arrive in time for Kent's opening game against Somerset at Tunbridge Wells on June 3.
He has been on the fringes of the strong South African seam attack since his debut in 2001, and has played 72 ODIs and six Tests, in addition to nine Twenty20 internationals. He has had recent Twenty20 experience, having played for the Royal Challengers Bangalore franchise that reached the final of IPL 2011. Langeveldt got to play only three matches in the IPL, and picked up five wickets.
"I am delighted that Charl will be playing for Kent," Paul Farbrace, Kent's director of cricket said. "His considerable experience in Twenty20 will give us a boost, and we look forward to welcoming him into the team."
Langeveldt said he was looking forward to his time with Kent, and the opportunity to play in the tournament.
