After 20 months in the sidelines, Jacques Kallis is espected to make return to the South African one-day team in the upcoming series against Pakistan at home. Kallis is looking forward to representing South Africa in the 2015 World Cup, last played an ODI in February 2012 against New Zealand.

The national selectors are yet to pick the squad but coach Russell Domingo said Kallis should be "available to play the one-day series against Pakistan."

"In T20s, our thought processes with the ball are not exactly spot on. Although the bowlers did well, we're still bowling balls to certain fields that we shouldn't be bowling," Domingo said in an interview to ESPNCricinfo.com.

As far as ODI cricket goes, Domingo was pleased with the developments AB de Villiers made in his captaincy, especially in regards to managing players on the field. The captain himself admitted he has settled in now and is happy with what he sees around him.

"We have a lot of depth. We've seen guys like Wayne Parnell coming in and doing well and he is almost coming [in] from the outside so it shows you that there is good depth," de Villiers said. "I am very happy with the group of players we have now. I don't think it will change too much for the World Cup."
