Tyron Henderson became the latest South African to join Kent after the English county announced on Monday he would be their second overseas player.
Henderson, 31, who has represented South Africa 'A', will join the club initially for the Twenty20 Cup competition.
The fast-medium bowler and hard-hitting batsman made his first-class debut for Border in 1998/99 and has signed a contract to play for Highveld Lions in the next South African season. He was the Standard Bank Pro20 cricketer of the year in 2004-05.
Henderson is joining Kent after South Africa's Justin Kemp was released early from his contract with the south-east county to ensure he was fresh for the one-day series in Sri Lanka in August and the Champions Trophy in India later in the year.
Graham Ford, Kent's director of cricket and a former South Africa coach, said: "I have known Tyron for a number of years and he is particularly suited for Twenty20 cricket. He has an excellent strike rate with the bat and is economical as a bowler."
