  • With the departure of people like Shaun Pollock, I often wondered how the Proteas would kick on and retain their place as one of if not the best cricketing sides in the world, but with constants such as Jaques Kallis, I have come to learn that such players form the core of the team and building around them is the best way to go
  • I think he is just simply magical and I cannot help but wonder just how one man can have so much talent and deliver results so consitently and seemingly at will like Jaque Kallis does
  • I found it very interesting how talkers would go on about how he plays for himself and looks to maintain good personal features at the expense of the team, but I was rather glad to see him silence his critics and kick things up a notch or two in the one day internationals and pro twenty games, re-inventing himself and showing that he can be a quick scorer when called upon to do so

      In every sporting code and every sports team particularly, there are players that one can point out without much argument as genuinely good at what they do, with absolutely no doubt about their talents and when it comes to the game of cricket, a certain South African all rounder by the name of Jaques Kallis fits that bill as perfectly as a hand fits into a glove.

      Now at the age of thirty five, I have been a witness of the immense talent of Jaques Kallis over the years and it doesn’t boggle my mind at all to have seen how other players have come and gone, getting call ups to the national team after displaying good performances domestically, while he just sticks in that top order of batsmen and features on


      the bowlers’ list as one of the main men as he has proven time and time again just how much quality he has in him as a cricketer.

      In sporting codes like football, I have seen how we get players that reach their peak at around their mid twenties and dominate world football with their sublime performances, but in cricket however it is a totally different picture that I ...


      • see, with the likes of Jaques Kallis shining right through their entire career. I cannot, for the life of me, think back to one single generally disappointing series of matches that Kallis had and it is simply out of this world how he just constantly manages to make a major contribution to the team, very often scoring half centuries and centuries in all versions of the game. Very recently, in the test series between South Africa and India he scored a double century in one innings and a century each in two more innings when everybody else was falling down around him. I think he is just simply magical and I cannot help but wonder just how one man can have so much talent and deliver results so consitently and seemingly
        at will like Jaque Kallis does.

        It will be a sad for me personally when Jakes finally decides to call it quits and hang up his bat and he will leave a void in the team as well as in my sport loving heart, and I hope that day isn’t coming around for at least a few more years.
