J Kallis in not able to bowl because of injury

South Africa lost J Kallis's bowling in 2nd Test:

Jacques Kallis will not be able to bowl for the remainder of the second Test but he will be able to bat, South Africa's team management has said, after the allrounder sustained a hamstring injury in the first session and went off the Adelaide Oval. His availability for the third Test in Perth will depend on how he responds to treatment.

Kallis had taken two wickets in 3.3 overs to reduce Australia to 55 for 3 when he aborted his run-up and immediately went off the field. He did not return for the rest of the day, and will now have to spend as much time on the field as he spends off it if South Africa want him to bat wherever they wish. If he is unable to spend enough time on the field, South Africa will have to push him down the batting order to No. 7 or later.
