Dolphins rope in Tait for T20 season
Thursday 11 August 2011

South African pace ace Shaun Tait has been roped in by South African provincial team the Dolphins for the 2011-2012 Twenty20 season.

The Dolphins said on Thursday that Tait will join the Durban-based team in February 2012 for the domestic Twenty20 competition. The 28-year-old Tait, who plays for South Australia back home, retired from one-day internationals after this year's World Cup to focus on Twenty20s.

He says in a Dolphins statement: "I am genuinely excited to be given this opportunity and am looking forward to playing my part with the Dolphins."

Dolphins chief executive Jesse Chellan says: "We are absolutely delighted to have secured Shaun. He is a world class, match winning fast bowler."

The 28-year-old Tait has 28 wickets at 17.78 in 19 T20 internationals.
