Wicket-keeper Heinrich Klaasen has been called up for the three Test series between India and South Africa, Cricket South Africa announced on Saturday. Klaasen replaces youngster Rudi Second, who suffered a finger injury during practice with South Africa A.

"Klaasen is part of the one-day squad for the South Africa A tour and he will now be added to the squad in Second's place for the four-day series that will assist his preparation for the Proteas Test series," CSA Acting Director of Cricket Corrie van Zyl said.
