South Africa teenage quick Wayne Parnell is returning for a second spell this season with Kent, the English county announced on Monday.

The 19-year-old, who starred for the Proteas in their run to the last four of the World Twenty20, impressed at Kent earlier in the season and is now returning to them for a further five-week spell.

He will be with Kent from July 10 to August 4 and that means he will be eligible for next month's Twenty20 Cup quarter-final against Durham, as well as three County Championship matches and the floodlit Nat West Pro40 game away to Glamorgan.

Kent chief executive Paul Millman said: "This is great news for the club. We are delighted to be able to bring Wayne back because he made such a big impact in his initial spell.

"The team has done really well to win a tough group and qualify for the quarter-finals of the Twenty20 Cup. Wayne's return will only help our prospects for next month's quarter-final against Durham.

"It would've been nice to keep him here for a slightly longer period but the South African Cricket Board are keen for him to fulfil international commitments later in the summer."
