Shaun Tait signs up with Peshawar ZalmiSport
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.
