Tahir recalled by South Africa

Imran Tahir has been recalled to the South Africa squad as cover for fellow spinner Robin Peterson ahead of the first Test against Pakistan.

Peterson injured his hand during Tuesday's 27-run one-day international defeat against New Zealand in Kimberley, but is expected to be passed fit.

The Proteas will convene in Johannesburg on Monday ahead of the first Test, which gets under way at the Wanderers on Friday.
