Stand-in South African captain Jacques Kallis said yesterday there were no tensions in the camp ahead of the third and final Test against Australia starting at Newlands today.

Kallis will lead the side in what has become a dead rubber game, with Australia 2-0 ahead in the three-match series, after a week of controversy.

Ashwell Prince was appointed captain in place of the injured Graeme Smith but the decision was overturned by Cricket South Africa chief executive Gerald Majola.

Kallis said there was no issue between him and Prince, who was appointed Test vice-captain at the beginning of the season.

"I think he had his reasons and his views why he didn't want it [the captaincy]," said Kallis. - Sapa-AFP
