Injury Rules Kallis Out Of Second Test

South Africa's Jacques Kallis has been ruled out of the second test against India in Durban on Tuesday because of a back injury.

A Cricket South Africa statement said the all-rounder felt a "sharp pain" in his back when he woke up on Sunday and had not recovered.

"Jacques has difficulty moving and will therefore not be playing in the second test," the statement added.

All-rounder Andrew Hall has replaced Kallis in the team.



India lead the three-match series 1-0 after last week's victory in Johannesburg.
