Cape Town - Gary Kirsten has joined the Proteas squad ahead of the second Test against Sri Lanka starting in Colombo on Thursday.

The former Proteas coach has previously been used as a strategic and batting consultant on an ad hoc basis, since relinquishing his head coach position with the national team last year.
