Johannesburg: South African spinners Robin Peterson and Imran Tahir have reportedly added `secret weapons` to their arsenal for the domestic RAM SLAM Twenty20 competition and ahead of the upcoming series against Australia.

Peterson will be using the so-called carrom ball, by flicking it between the thumb and the middle finger to impart spin, which he used against right-handed Zaheer Khan in the second Test against India at Kingsmead recently, it in the T20 competition.

According to Sport24, that delivery has been popularised by the Indian off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin.

Meanwhile, the report said that Tahir has developed a second `googly`, which is more difficult to detect than his traditional googly and will join forces with another leg-spinner for the Highveld Lions, Eddie Leie, whose googly is also camouflaged masterly.
