18 years at the top

KINGSMEAD rose as one yesterday to pay homage to and salute a giant of South African and world cricket when Jacques Kallis walked down the steps from the dressing room and onto the field in his 166th and final Test.

They have all played the game at the highest level, yet it was the young Kallis who stood tall and dominated world cricket in the years ahead. Announcing his decision, Kallis said, “It’s been an honour and a privilege to be part of the South African Test team since my debut 18 years ago. I have enjoyed every moment but I feel the time is right to hang up my Test whites.”
