Johannesburg – Cricket South Africa (CSA) on Wednesday added Kyle Abbott of the Dolphins to the Proteas squad for the five-match Momentum one day international (ODI) series against Pakistan next month.

“Morne Morkel's recovery from his hamstring injury is still a work in progress,” CSA selection convenor Andrew Hudson said.

“And we consider it prudent to provide extra depth to our fast bowling resources.”
