Imran Tahir makes comeback to South African Test team

Leg-spinner Imran Tahir has been added to the South African Test team as cover for Robin Peterson for the 1st Test against Pakistan which starts at the Wanderers on Friday.

Cricket South Africa selection convener Andrew Hudson mentioned they’re positive that Robbie will be fit to play but included that it’s prudent to have a cover player for him available to take a full part in the team’s planning this week.

The Pakistan-born leg-spinner Imran Tahir has played 11 Test games for South Africa since his debut 14 months ago against Australia. South Africa play 3 Tests, two T20s and 5 ODIs against Pakistan.
