Jacques Kallis, 37, dominated Australia's bowlers, in the first Test match, scoring 147. Robert Craddock, writing in the Daily Telegraph, says that Kallis is more dangerous, now, as he is free of the burden of expectation.
There is something different about South Africa's great all-rounder Jacques Kallis this tour and here's what it is - he's free. There is no saddle on his back, no ball and chain trailing behind him. No weight of a succession of captains saying, "You know you are our rock and don't get out," which had been the message for 15 years, and he is not facing any statistician pressure from himself or others to drag or keep his average above 50. After all these years of being The Man, he has wriggled out of the strait jacket and is sniffing the breeze. That spells grave danger for Australia.
