Adelaide:  Chevrolet Knights all-rounder Ryan McLaren has been called into the South African tour squad as cover for several injured players ahead of this week's final Perth Test against Australia, Cricket South Africa (CSA) said on Sunday.

All-rounder Jacques Kallis has an injured hamstring and paceman Vernon Philander missed the current second Adelaide Test with a lower back complaint.

"There are injury concerns around both Jacques Kallis and Vernon Philander," CSA selection convener Andrew Hudson said in a statement.

"So we have specifically gone for an all-rounder as a like-for-like replacement. Ryan can comfortably bat at number seven in addition to his seam bowling skills."

McLaren's only previous Test match was against England at the Wanderers Stadium in 2010.

CSA said McLaren will leave for Australia on Monday.

The third and final Test begins at Perth's WACA Ground on Friday.
