Cricket South Africa chief executive Gerald Majola has publicly asked Jacques Kallis to re-consider standing down as vice-captain.
Kallis said in a statement to media
that he was extremely disappointed in missing out on selection was considering his future with South Africa cricket.
Majola said in a statement "Jacques Kallis phoned me yesterday to say he was resigning as vice-captain of the Proteas because of his disappointment over not being selected for the South African squad for the ICC World Twenty20 tournament."
"I said we all understood his disappointment, and appealed to him not to resign while in an emotional state, but to rather meet with CSA to discuss the matter fully so that we could deal with all the issues at hand."
"It is most disappointing therefore that Jacques took a unilateral decision, after speaking to me, to publicly announce his resignation as vice-captain."
"Jacques is employed by CSA, and we expected him at least to sit down at a meeting and go through the matter before he made his own decision to make a public announcement." Discuss this news item in the Cricket Web Forums
