After squaring off the two-match Twenty20 series, South Africa and Pakistan will once again face each other in the three-match one day international series, starting in Cape Town on Sunday.

South Africa's team is bolstered by the return of experienced allrounder Jacques Kallis, who hasn't played an ODI in 18 months. Kallis, who has represented South Africa in 321 ODIs, played his last 50-over game against New Zealand in February, 2012.
