Johannesburg - The Dolphins announced Hashim Amla and Lonwabo Tsotsobe as their Cricket SA (CSA) contracted players for the 2012/2013 season, but Proteas spinner Imraan Tahir was a notable absentee.

The 33-year-old Tahir has played seven Tests and five One-Day Internationals for South Africa.

The Dolphins confirmed Amla as a CSA contracted player on Monday, after Tsotsobe signed a one-year deal on Friday.

The contract is in line with a CSA policy that allows nationally contracted players to nominate a team of their choice for the forthcoming season.

Tahir is expected to continue his career with the Highveld Lions.

Dolphins squad:

CSA Contracted players: Hashim Amla, Lonwabe Tsotsobe.

Rest of the squad: Kyle Abbott, Craig Alexander, Ahmed Amla, Cody Chetty, Cameron Delport, Robbie Frylinck, Imraan Khan, Keshav Maharaj, David Miller, Dane Paterson, Mthokozisi Shezi, Daryn Smit, Vaughn Van Jaarsveld, Divan Van Wyk, Jonathan Vandiar. Khaya Zondo. Rookie: Prenelan Subrayen.
