Uncapped spinners Tabraiz Shamsi and Keshav Maharaj have both been named in South Africa's squad for the three-Test cricket tour of Australia starting in Perth next month.

Morne Morkel has also been named after he missed the Proteas' most recent Test series against New Zealand due to injury but his position is subject to successfully completing a domestic first class match starting in Port Elizabeth on Tuesday.

Rilee Rossouw, who has impressed during South Africa's dominant one-day series against Australia this month, has also been named while Faf du Plessis will captain the team in the absence of injured AB de Villiers.
