The infamous coach of the Kolkata Knight Riders, John Buchanan, has announced he has called on South African Charl Langeveldt to help out his players, after the change in pitch conditions in SA as opposed to India worried him a little.
Langeveldt is 34 and has been out of SA cricket for a while after an incident with Cricket South Africa. Since then, he has been playing domestic cricket in England for Derbyshire. Apparently the money they're offering Langeveldt to circumvent his Kolpak contract is significant. Not superstar big, but big enough for a player who's near the end of his career.
According to Buchanan, Langeveldt may open the bowling with Ishant Sharma.
Congrats Pune on winning the IPL
