Kallis won't bowl, can bat
Vernon Philander and Jacques Kallis both went for MRI scans after picking up injuries on day one of the second test against Australia in Adelaide.
Philander was withdrawn from the playing XI after waking up with a stiff lower back, and Kallis left the field in the 17th over with a hamstring injury.
Proteas Team Manager Dr Mohammed Moosajee commented on the results: “Vernon’s scan reveals nothing more than a lower lumbar muscle strain as initially suspected.
"He will receive treatment and undergo rehabilitation during the course of the current test match and we are hopeful he will be fit for the final test in Perth.
“Jacques has suffered a Grade 1 strain to his right hamstring.
"He will not be able to bowl in the current test match but can bat, we can only make a call on his availability for the next test match closer to the time as it is subject to how he responds to treatment.”
