Cape Town: Jan 7, 2013
 
South Africa all-rounder Jacques Kallis was rested by the selectors as four uncapped players were included in the 14-man squad for the limited overs series against New Zealand, starting January 19.
 
According to a report in the NDTV, the senior all-rounder has been rested with view of preserving him for the upcoming 2015 World Cup. Kallis earlier during the Test series expressed his desire to feature in the 50-over world cup to be held in Australia in 2015.
 
The veteran cricketer earlier also missed the two T20 matches at the start of the New Zealand tour. The four new faces to feature in the Proteas squad for three-match ODI series against New Zealand are wicketkeeper Quinton de Kock, Aaron Phangiso, Farhaan Behardien and Rory Kleinveldt.

The head selector of South Africa Andrew Hudson was quoted by the website as saying, “The Champions Trophy also marks the halfway point to the next ICC World Cup, so this is a critical part of our preparation to win these two major ICC events.

“The four newcomers have all been doing well, either in domestic cricket or by representing the Proteas in other formats.”

South Africa squad: AB de Villiers (c), Hashim Amla, Farhaan Behardien, Quinton de Kock (wk), Faf du Plessis, Colin Ingram, Rory Kleinveldt, Ryan McLaren, Morne Morkel, Robin Peterson, Aaron Phangiso, Graeme Smith, Dale Steyn, Lonwabo Tsotsobe.
