Durbanville Cricket Club and Victoria Cricket Club have signed Kent all-rounder Charlie Hartley and spinner Imran Qayyum, respectively, for the remainder of their 2016-17 Western Province Cricket Association season.
All-rounder Hartley is involved in the ongoing premier league fixture against Western Province Cricket Cricket Club – and spinner Qayyum is playing in the first division A match against Montrose Cricket Club.
Former West Indies captain and Kent coach Jimmy Adams, in partnership with Risque Dynamics Sports Tours and Logistics, was instrumental in introducing the 22-year-old Hartley and 23-year-old Qayyum to the Cape Town-based clubs.
Qayyum played first-class cricket alongside England spinner James Tredwell, New Zealand batsman Tom Latham and South African fast bowler Kagiso Rabada at Kent earlier this year. Hartley, meanwhile, produced a couple of formidable performances in the 2016 Royal London One-Day Cup.
