David Terbrugge will fly to New Zealand on Tuesday as cover for the injured Shaun Pollock, the United Cricket Board (UCB) said on Monday.
Pollock sustained a groin injury on South Africa's tour to New Zealand, which still has the sixth and final one-day international and a three test series to be played.
"He (Terbrugge) will also serve as an extra bowler who will provide depth," selection convenor Omar Henry said in a UCB media release.
"There will be a tremendous workload on the bowlers, since three back-to-back test matches will be played."
Terbrugge, 27, has played six tests, the last of which was against Bangladesh in October 2002.
"I am naturally over the moon," said Terbrugge. "It has come as a surprise, and it's wonderful to win a recall to the national side."
