    Fawad Ahmed, who left his home in the border region near Afghanistan to come to Australia on a short-stay visa to play cricket in 2010, is awaiting news on whether his claim for asylum has been accepted.

    In the meantime, he will be used by the Australian team for batting practice during the South Africa series because of the similarities in his bowling to the Proteas' leg-spinner Imran Tahir.

    "I'm really excited and I think I can bowl well. It's good for them and it's good for me, that they have asked me to go there," Ahmed told the Sydney Morning Herald.

    Ahmed is familiar with naturalised South African Tahir, having played against him when they were both in Pakistan's domestic cricket.

    "We are the same height, with a high arm action, and we can both bowl a good wrong 'un," he said.

    "His leg spin is bouncy, and I am like him, so it's good for the Australian batsmen to practise on my bowling".
