Kiwi pair to miss Twenty20 match

Source -

New Zealand will be without Jacob Oram and Chris Martin for Friday's Twenty20 international against South Africa.

Oram (hamstring) missed the second Test but hopes to return in Sunday's first one-day game, while seamer Martin is still suffering from a stomach virus.

Jacques Kallis return to South Africa's Twenty20 side after being omitted from the squad for the Twenty20 World Cup.

Shaun Pollock, who sat out both Tests, returns while pace bowler Dale Steyn replaces batsman Justin Kemp.
Captain Graeme Smith said he was pleased to have a settled team.

"I'm glad there's consistency of selection because it builds an environment that breeds success," he said.

"The more time you spend together, the better your results."

The Kiwis will be hoping to bounce back after suffering two heavy defeats in the Test series.

Captain Daniel Vettori said: "The one-day internationals are the most important games ahead, so hopefully Jacob will be able to play in those.

"It's a chance for us to redeem ourselves, but we've taken solace in the fact we've been pretty good operators in Twenty20 and one-day cricket in the last few years."
