South Africa has included uncapped seamers Daryn Dupavillon and Ottniel Baartman in an extended 21-man Test squad for its first return to Pakistan for 14 years later this month.

South Africa will play Tests in Karachi and Rawalpindi, starting on January 26 and also welcome back fast bowler Kagiso Rabada and all-rounder Dwaine Pretorius, as well as spinners Tabraiz Shamsi and George Linde.

“Considering that the conditions that will be faced are largely unknown to the South African team, we wanted to strengthen the attack with the skill sets that Tabraiz Shamsi and George Linde have to offer, while giving players like Daryn Dupavillon and Ottniel Baartman an opportunity after making strong cases for themselves in recent seasons,” convener of selectors Victor Mpitsang said in a media release from Cricket South Africa on Friday.
