Steelbacks miss out on Theron signing
The Northants Steelbacks have missed out on the chance to sign signed South African pace bowler Juan Theron because of problems with his work permit.
"The ECB initially issued a Great British entry visa and then decided it wasn't going to happen," Coach David Capel told BBC Radio Northampton.
"We're disappointed because we think he would've been a very fine player for us in that competition."
Theron has played 31 Twenty20 matches; taking 32 wickets at an average of 23.18. His full and straight style has earned the seamer a measly economical rate of 6.38.
