Adelaide, Nov 24: South Africa's Jacques Kallis is likely to miss the third Test match against Australia at Perth having aggravated his strained right hamstring during his valiant half century that helped the visitors to avoid follow-on in the second Test match at Adelaide on Saturday.

With South Africa scheduled to play its third Test at Perth next week, the team is likely to miss the services of Jacques Kallis, who has been a consistent performer for his team.

The all-rounder hurt his leg while bowling on Thursday, and was off the field after the 17th over and batted down the order at No 9, on Day three of the second Test, contributed 58 runs and added 93 runs for the 8th wicket with Faf du Plessis to help South Africa post 388 in reply to Australia's mammoth 550.

While he is expected to bat in the second innings, South Africa team management is planning to bring in a replacement for the third Test, according to the team manager, Dr Mohammed Moosajee.
