Jacques Kallis was born in 1975 in Cape Town, South Africa. This South African cricketer is known as an all-rounder and is a formidable right-handed batsman and fast-medium swing bowler. He made his test debut for South Africa in 1995 in a match vs England and his One Day International debut in 1996 in a match against England. To date he’s played in more than 140 test matches and more than 300 One Day International matches for South Africa. He’s scored over 11,000 runs in Test Match cricket and over 11,000 runs in One Day International Cricket. Today Jacques Kallis made history in a match played between South Africa and India and Supersport Park in Centurion. He achieved his highest score and first double century in test cricket. He reached a scored of 201 not out a few minutes before South Africa declared their first innings total at 620 for the loss of 4 wickets in the match (the highest ever total achieved in a test match at Supersport Park). This is one remarkable achievement and I was fortunate enough to witness this happening today. Keep doing South Africa proud Jacques “Hair-Ou” Kallis.
