Imran Tahir replaced injured Peterson for 2nd test against West Indies

Imran Tahir has replaced injured Robin Peterson for the Boxing Day test match against the West Indies which will start from December 26th. Robin Peterson is struggling with a cut at his left finger during a fielding practice which required three stitches for him and will not be in action for at least two weeks. Peterson did not played in the first test at Centurion but Peterson was getting ready to play the second Test as the pitch in Port Elizabeth is expected to offer something to spinners. South Africa is struggling with players injuries as knee problem has kept JP Duminy's out of test series at least until the start of the limited-overs games and Quinton de Kock's ankle injury has ruled him out of action for six weeks. Tahir will be eager to make use of the opportunity before picking squad for ICC cricket world cup 2015. The leg-spinner hasn't enjoyed success in test match cricket.
