Imran Tahir will be a part of South Africa's squad for the ICC Cricket World Cup 2011.

Leg-spinner Imran Tahir has been called up to the South Africa preliminary squad of 30 for the ICC Cricket World Cup in the place of Highveld Lions batsman Jonathan Vandiar.

"We feel that we need to widen our bowling options," commented Cricket South Africa (CSA) selection convener Andrew Hudson. "I have discussed the matter with Jonathan and I would like to express my gratitude to him for withdrawing gracefully. He knows he is very much part of our plans going forward."
