Thami Tsolekile has been called up to South Africa's touring squad in England as a replacement for retired wicket-keeper Mark Boucher.

Boucher was forced to call time on his international career after suffering a ruptured left eyeball during the drawn tour game against Somerset.

Tsolekile, who recently took eight catches in an innings for South Africa 'A', has played three Tests - two against India and one against England in 2004.

The series of three Tests against England gets underway at The Oval on 19th July, before which South Africa take on Kent in a three-day tour game starting on 13th July.

South Africa Test squad: Graeme Smith (captain), Hasim Amla, Marchant de Lange, AB de Villiers, JP Duminy, Imran Tahir, Jacques Kallis, Morne Morkel, Alviro Petersen, Robin Peterson, Vernon Philander, Jacques Rudolph, Dale Steyn, Thami Tsolekile, Lonwabo Tsotsobe
