Kallis served their nation in cricket more than what he was supposed to do. Memoth record as batsmen, bowler and fielder as well. I remember few years back he mentioned 3 wishes in his career: To win test series against Aus, to win test series against England in England, and to win the world cup. His first 2 wishes fulfilled twice and now I also wish of his final wish in WC 15. All best King Kallis...

What a fantastic servant of the game he has been..... Almost around there for ages...... Marvellous batsman, fantastic bowler and a great fielder.....A complete package..... Well, cricket is getting boring every passing day coz of the retirement of Legends like Ponting and Kallis..... I wish they would have played even more
