I FEEL THAT KALLIS NEEDS TO BE THERE WITH SOUTH AFRICA UNTILL THE 2015 WORLD CUP. HE HAS BEEN SERVING THE COUNTRY FOR THE PAST 17YEARS AND WITHOUT DOUBT ,IS THE BEST CRICKETER SA HAS EVER PRODUCED. IT IS ALSO RIGHT FORM THE POINT OF VIEW OF DOMINGO THAT KALLIS NEEDS TO PLAY ODI CRICKET BEFORE 2015 WORLD CUP TO WHICH KALLIS HAS SHOWN INTENTION OF PLAYING. KALLIS IS A VERY IMPORTANT PLAYER FOR SA AND THEY SHOULD NOT PUSH HIM INTO A CORNER. WITHOUT KALLIS IT IS VIRTUALLY IMPOSSIBLE FOR SA TO WIN THE WORLD CUP. SA S BATTING LINE UP IS VERY FRAGILE WITHOUT FRAGILE AND IT WAS EXTREMELY VISIBLE IN THE LAST ODI SERIES IN SRI LANKA WHERE SA HARDLY MANAGED TO PRODUCE A GOOD START. HE HAS HAD INJURY PROBLEMS OVER THE PAST. AT THE AGE OF 38 , IT IS HIGHLY RISKY TO EMPLOY HIM IN ALL THE FORMATS. KALLIS IS ABSOLUTELY IMPORTANT FOR THE TESTS. SO HE NEEDS TO BE PLAYING TEST CRICKET OFTEN. THE PROBLEM IS WITH HIS LIMITED OVERS PARTICIPATION. SA CANNOT AFFORD TO LOSE A PLAYER LIKE KALLIS. IT IS UNDERSTANDABLE FROM DOMINGO S POINT OF VIEW THAT KALLIS NEEDS TO PLAY SOME LIMITED OVERS CRICKET BEFORE HE COULD REPRESENT SA IN THE WORLD CUP. DOMINGO SHOULD NOT PUSH KALLIS IN A CORNER BY IMPOSING A CONDITION.  HE SHOULD ALLOW KALLIS TO MAKE HIS OWN DECISION. HE IS THE BEST PERSON TO JUDGE HIMSELF. DOMINGO MUST MAKE SURE THAT KALLIS IS IN THE RIGHT POSITION ,FRAME OF MIND, FITNESS, TO PLAY FOR THE WORLD CUP.

KALLIS NEEDS TO BE THERE FOR SA IN THE WORLD CUP.
