PRETORIA: Herschelle Gibbs has been recalled as cover for injured allrounder Jacques Kallis for the remainder of South Africa’s ODI series against England. Kallis is expected to be sidelined for a month with a rib injury, discovered after a scan at the weekend. Kallis missed the seven-wicket loss to England at Centurion on Sunday, which put the hosts behind 1-0 in the five-match ODI series. It is not certain whether Gibbs, with 21 ODI centuries, will play in the next match in Cape Town on Friday as the least experienced batsmen, Alviro Petersen and Hashim Amla, both scored half centuries on Sunday.
