Kallis rested for ODIs against England
Jacques Kallis has been omitted from South Africa’s one-day squad for the series against England so he can rest before the World Twenty20, Cricket South Africa said on Wednesday.
The 36-year-old Kallis, a veteran of 321 ODIs, was replaced in the 15-man squad by new cap Dean Elgar.
South Africa will play five matches against England in August and September, and the World Twenty20 begins in Sri Lanka on September 18.
Elgar, the 25-year-old batting allrounder, has played in 85 List A matches and scored 2,593 runs at an average of 39.28, and has taken 29 wickets with his left-arm spin.
Legspinner Imran Tahir, who played the last of his five ODIs during the 2011 World Cup, has also been called up to the squad, and there was a recall for allrounder Ryan McLaren. Read more
