Profile

No batsman prizes his wicket more highly, and no wicket in all of cricket is more highly prized. Jacques Kallis is the broad-shouldered colossus of the South African team, a figure whose looming presence inspires calm in some and dread in others. Few players who belong to the modern age are a better fit for the notion of the classical cricketer. Kallis is a fine, forceful batsman who has at his disposal both a rock-solid technique and a mind impervious to distraction. Though his role as a bowler diminishes with each passing season, he will be remembered as a purveyor of sometimes surprising pace and swing, and awkward bounce. In the slips, his sure-handedness and rattlesnake reflexes make ridiculous catches look regulation.

Timeline
    • December 1995-January 1996
      A slow start
      • An ordinary debut in a rain-hit Test in Durban. Kallis lasted just 12 balls for one run in his only innings. His performance in his next few games was hardly a sign of things to come, averaging 8.14 in his first five Tests. However, his 3 for 29 in the nerve-wracking moments of the Port Elizabeth Test against Australia gave him the much-needed recognition as a bowler.
    • December 26-30, 1997
      First Test century
      • Scores his first Test century, against Australia in Melbourne. A gutsy second-innings 101 under pressure saves South Africa from defeat as Kallis bats out the last day.
    • January 16, 1998
      First ODI ton
      • Scores his maiden ODI century, 111 against New Zealand at the WACA. South Africa win convincingly.
