Charl Langeveldt has the perfect combination of first class cricket player. Langeveldt first came to notice with his ability to swing the ball at genuine pace, and further work on his action in recent seasons allowed him to generate even more movement, bringing him to the attention of the national selectors. He made his one-day international debut against Kenya in Kimberley in 2001-02, taking two top-order wickets. This was followed by his career best figures of 4 for 21 when the two sides met for a second time at Newlands shortly afterwards. His most impressive game so far has been 3 for 17 against Bangladesh in the ICC Champions Trophy. He returned in style against England at Newlands in 2004-05, breaking his hand batting on his return but taking 5 for 46.
