Cape Town - Proteas all-rounder Jacques Kallis is likely to return to the one-day side for the ICC Champions Trophy event in England in June.Kallis has not played a one-day international since February 2012 and is no longer available for bilateral one-day series but, according to the Cricinfo website, could be back in contention for ICC tournaments, as he did for the World Twenty20 last September.It is a well-known fact that Kallis wants to play in the 2015 Cricket World Cup, and coach Gary Kirsten feels the 37-year-old has enough international experience to slot back into the starting XI immediately.However, participating in ODI events from time-to-time would be wise to keep Kallis sharp for the world showpiece event in two years' time.Kirsten revealed after the one-day series loss to New Zealand in January this year that he was in discussions with Kallis, and after Sunday's series win over Pakistan, the coach said talks are still ongoing and Kallis is being persuaded. "Negotiations are going well," Kirsten said. "Jacques Kallis is not going to play one-day cricket anymore because we value him in Test matches too much but we reserve the right to call him up in certain tournaments. The Champions Trophy is the last major tournament before the World Cup and I am excited that he may make himself available for that." The Proteas face India in the ICC tournament's opening match (Group B) in Cardiff on June 6, before they also meet Pakistan and West Indies with the top two sides across the two groups cracking semi-final berths.HAVE YOUR SAY: Should the 37-year-old Jacques Kallis be used in ODI games before the 2015 Cricket World Cup? Or is he good enough to slot straight back into the side for that tournament in two years’ time? Send your thoughts to Sport24.
