Adelaide:

Jacques Kallis is in danger of missing the third test in Perth next week after aggravating his strained right hamstring while scoring a courageous half century to help South Africa avoid the follow-on Saturday in the second test against Australia.

The 37-year-old allrounder hurt his leg while bowling on Thursday and didn't field after the 17th over of Australia's first innings. He batted down the order at No. 9 on day three and contributed 58 in a 93-run eighth-wicket stand with Faf du Plessis to help South Africa to 388 in reply to Australia's 550.

Team manager, Dr. Mohammed Moosajee, said Kallis would likely bat in the second innings here, but South Africa was considering bringing in a replacement for the third test because of the short turnaround between matches.
