Lance Klusener signs for Northants
Lance Klusener, the former South Africa allrounder, has signed for Northamptonshire on a two-year contract.
Klusener, who played a few matches for Nottinghamshire in 2002 and Middlesex in 2004, will join forces with his countryman Kepler Wessels, the county's coach - and he revealed it has been a long-term ambition of his to play county cricket.
"I've played in bits and bobs over there, but I'm really looking forward to playing for a sustained period under Kepler," Klusener, 34, told Sporting Life. "Because I don't have many years left on the clock, this opportunity was a welcome one.
"I've never played under Kepler or been coached by him, but whenever I've had a batting problem in the past, he's always been one of my first stops along with Fordie (former South Africa coach Graham Ford)."
