SAfrica rests Kallis, Steyn and Morkel for T20

South Africa has called batsman Hashim Amla into its squad and will rest allrounder Jacques Kallis and fast bowlers Dale Steyn and Morne Morkel for the one-off Twenty20 match against India next month.
Retired pace bowler Makhaya Ntini was also named in the Proteas' 12-man squad on Wednesday for the Jan. 9 game at Durban's Moses Mabhida World Cup football stadium.
Ntini announced his retirement from international cricket in November after 101 tests and 173 ODIs, but Cricket South Africa said he would be given a farewell match.
Convener of selectors Andrew Hudson said South Africa had also decided to rest Kallis, Steyn and Morkel for the 20-over match because of their "heavy workload" in the ongoing test series against the Indians.
