Hosts South Africa left all-rounder Jacques Kallis out of their 15-man squad for September's Twenty20 World Cup.

The Proteas' leading scorer in Tests and ODIs has been criticised in the past for slow scoring in one-dayers.

Other all-rounders Shaun Pollock, Johan van der Wath, Albie Morkel, Justin Kemp and young prospect Vernon Philander have been included in the line-up.

Top-order batsman Gulam Bodi, 28, who moved from India to South Africa in his teens, is the only uncapped player.

"The squad provides options in all departments," chief selector Joubert Strydom said. "There is a good blend of experience and youth in the squad."

South Africa squad: Graeme Smith (captain), Gulam Bodi, Loots Bosman, Mark Boucher, AB de Villiers, JP Duminy, Herschelle Gibbs, Justin Kemp, Albie Morkel, Morne Morkel, Makhaya Ntini, Vernon Philander, Shaun Pollock, Thandi Tshabalala, Johan van der Wath.
