Kallis to sit out

cricket Updated: Jun 16, 2009 00:20 IST

Highlight Story

Jacques Kallis, the top run-scorer in the Twenty20 World Cup, will miss South Africa's final second round match against India because of injury.

Kallis, who has scored 174 runs in four matches at opener, was suffering from a minor back injury. "We are going to give Jacques rest as he has a sore back so we will get him right for Thursday (first semifinal) and Morne Morkel is going to come in for him.

In terms of our batting lineup everyone will slide up a place one and Herschelle (Gibbs) will come up front to open. From that perspective it will give everyone a good opportunity to play well.
