SA team for 1st test against Pakistan

SA team for 1st test against Pakistan

The following team was announced:

G Kirsten(c)
A Bacher
J Kallis
A Hudson
D Cullinan
S Pollock
B McMillan
L Klusener
M Boucher
P Symcox
A Donald

12th man H Gibbs

This shows 4 changes from the team that played in the 3rd test against
Australia. 2 changes are enforced due to Richardson's retirement and
Cronje being unfit. Allan Donald is fit again and has been bowling for
his provincial side Free State.

Gibbs, Rhodes, Richardson and Cronje are either omitted or
unavailable, and  Hudson (enjoying rich domestic form in the Natal
middle order), Donald, Boucher and Cullinan are theri replacements.

The names are in the order given on SABC news - so this is not
necessarily the final batting order. The broadcast I heard
specifically mentioned that Gibbd would be 12th man.
