Middlesex Sign Friedel De Wet For 2008 Season

Middlesex have announced the signing of South Africa A and Highveld Lions fast bowler Friedel De Wet as a Kolpak player for the 2008 season, subject to clearance from Cricket South Africa.

De Wet impressed when playing for South Africa A against New Zealand in a recent tour game and he has taken 138 first-class wickets in 29 matches at an average of 21.17.

The 27-year-old was the leading wicket-taker in last season's SuperSport series and bolsters a seam attack that has been weakened by the departure of Richard Johnson, Chris Whelan, and Chris Wright.
