Kent have signed South Africa bowler Kagiso Rabada for a short spell this summer.

The 20-year-old paceman was his country's leading wicket-taker in the recent Test and one-day series against England and also topped their bowling averages in the 50-over series.

He is also part of their squad for the two Twenty20 matches to come on Friday and Sunday.

He said: "I will play hard and try my best. I want to learn from the experience - particularly bowling in different conditions. Most of all I am looking forward to enjoying the experience."
