Memorable moments by Jacques Kallis

One of the greatest all rounder of all time South Africa’s Jacques Kallis announced his retirement from all kinds of International Cricket yesterday. He has been rightly called “Gary Sobers of our era” by Rahul Dravid. Let us take you back to some of the memorable moments given to us by Jacques Kallis.

Memorable Moments by Jacques Kallis

119* and 3/3 against India at Durban in 2006

This was one of the most memorable performances by Jacques Kallis as he stood out alone in South Africa’s total of 248 runs. The proteas were in a bit of trouble at 209 for 7 at one stage, but Kallis remained firm on the pitch and scored 119 runs from 160 balls and helped his team to post a respectable total. The next highest score was 41. He did not stop at that moment either, when India turned up to bat Kallis took 3 wickets for just 3 runs and Indian team was bundled out for just 91 runs in the process.

83 and 3/30 against Pakistan at Dubai in 2010

Although South Africa made a mammoth total of 317 for 5 in their allotted 50 overs Kallis did his bit by scoring 85 runs from 95 balls and then took 3 top Pakistani batsmen and South Africa won convincingly.

53* and 2/15 against New Zealand at Edgbaston in 1999

This was a World Cup league match and Kallis showed the Kiwis that he can make runs thick and fast as well. He bullied them by scoring 36 ball 53 runs and remained unbeaten and then bowled a superb spell of 6-2-15-2 after Captain Cronje gave him the new ball. Regardless to say that he was declared man of the match for that performance.

Champions Trophy 1998 in Dhaka

Although South Africans are not known for winning too many ICC events, but they did in 1998 when they won the ICC Champions Trophy which was then called the Wills International Cup. Kallis was a young boy at that time and scored 113 runs off just 100 balls against Sri Lanka in the semifinals and in the final in a tough game against the West Indies, Kallis took 5 wickets for just 30 runs. Kallis played well in the games which meant a lot for the South Africans. All in all in these two games, Kallis scored 164 runs and took 8 wickets!
