McLaren recalled to Proteas squad



Chevrolet Knights allrounder Ryan McLaren has been called up to the Proteas squad for the final test against Australia, starting in Perth on Friday, as cover for injured players Jacques Kallis and Vernon Philander.

“There are injury concerns around both Jacques Kallis and Vernon Philander, so we have specifically gone for an allrounder as a like-for-like replacement," said Andrew Hudson, CSA convener of selectors.

"Ryan can comfortably bat No 7 in addition to his seam bowling skills.”

McLaren’s only previous test appearance was in the final test against England in 2010, where Steyn and Morkel ravaged England and McLaren was hardly required to bowl, as South Africa came back to square the four-match series 1-1.

The 29-year-old's most recent appearance for the Proteas was in the recently-completed ODI series in England.

His domestic form for the Knights in the Momentum One Day Cup has been good – he has taken 15 wickets in six matches, at an average of 15.06, and has scored 179 runs at an average of 44.75.

McLaren will leave for Australia on Monday evening.
