Australia’s express pacer Shaun Tait has signed up with Pakistan Super League (PSL) side Peshawar Zalmi, bolstering an already lethal pace attack led by Pakistan’s left-arm duo of Wahab Riaz and Junaid Khan.
“Australian pacer Shaun Tait has reached an agreement with Peshawar Zalmi for #HBLPSL,” said a post on the PSL official Facebook account.
Tait, 32, is also set to return to the Australian side, when the World Champions take on India in a T20 series which kicks off on January 26.
One of the fastest bowler’s in the world, Shaun Tait, will don the Australian colours after a long gap of five years — his last international outing came against India in 2011.
“I suppose I feel pretty privileged, honestly, to be called in at this stage of my career,” he said while talking to ESPNCricinfo on Tuesday.
“And obviously with a few injuries around, it has been timing and probably a little bit lucky. But you go through a career, you have bad luck and good luck. This is a good luck one for me and I will take it,” he added.
Under the captaincy of Pakistan T20 skipper Shahid Afridi, Peshawar Zalmi start their PSL campaign when they face Islamabad United on February 5 and the match could potentially feature the Aussie pacer.
Tait has 19 scalps in the 28 T20Is he has played for Australia.
