Cape Town - Jacques Kallis will open the batting for the Cape Cobras in Sunday's RAM SLAM T20 Challenge final at Newlands, Die Burger's website reports.

The Cobras will face the winner of Thursday's eliminator match in Durban between the Dolphins and Titans.

Kallis will open the batting alongside Richard Levi and will also fulfil the role of frontline bowler.

Kallis's presence is a welcome boost for the home side who have lost seven players to the national side.

Paul Adams's men must do without the likes of Graeme Smith, Hashim Amla, JP Duminy, Robin Peterson, Vernon Philander, Dale Steyn and Rory Kleinveldt.

Adams said Kallis will add a lot of value to their team. "He is good against pace and spin bowlers and will definitely help kick-start our innings," said Adams.

The absence of the Proteas players opens the door for players like Dane Piedt (spinner), Lizaad Williams (fast bowler) and Sybrand Engelbrecht (fielding specialist) to get a run.
