Australian fast bowler Shaun Tait has been signed up by Peshawar Zalmi to play in the first season of the upcoming Pakistan Super League. The decision to sign Tait was made by Zalmi’s management after Chris Jordan, one of the team’s premier pacers, was called up by England for their tour of South Africa, cutting short his participation in the PSL. Shaun Tait last played for Australia in the 2011 World Cup quarter-final against India, after which he announced his retirement from all long-form cricket and now plays only in T-20.

Shaun Tait is believed to be the fastest bowler playing active cricket right now, He regularly bowls above 145 KPH, his fastest ball has been recorded at 161.1kph at Lords against England.It is also considered to be the second-fastest of all-time behind Shoaib Akhtar, but it has been the consistent push for speed that has crippled him regularly.

Tait’s addition will be a boost to a Peshawar seam attack that already has Wahab Riaz and Junaid Khan. The team will play its first match of the tournament on February 5, against Islamabad United.
