Australia fast bowler Shaun Tait has joined South African provincial team the Dolphins for the 2011-2012 Twenty20 season.

The Dolphins say Thursday that Tait will join the Durban-based team in February 2012 for the domestic Twenty20 competition.

Tait, who plays for South Australia back home, retired from one-day internationals after this year's World Cup to focus on Twenty20s.

He says in a Dolphins statement: "I am genuinely excited to be given this opportunity and am looking forward to playing my part with the Dolphins."

Dolphins chief executive Jesse Chellan says: "We are absolutely delighted to have secured Shaun. He is a world class, match winning fast bowler."

The 28-year-old Tait has 28 wickets at 17.78 in 19 T20 Internationals.
