Pakistan pace bowler Haris Rauf has said he is ready to go and put his skills on show in the upcoming series against South Africa.
Rauf has yet to make his Test debut, but has featured in three first-class matches and taken seven wickets at an average of 39.28.
Facing the prospect of playing his first Test match, the 27-year-old is hoping it happens as he has already represented Pakistan in limited overs cricket.
