Jacques Kallis, regarded as one of the greatest all-rounders of all time, had the best retirement possible - a fine century in his last test innings and a 10 wicket victory for his team. He ended his career with 13,289 runs (becoming the third highest ever, now replacing Rahul Dravid for the honour) in 266 Tests at an average of 55.37 with 45 Test hundreds and 58 50s. He also took 200 catches and claimed 292 wickets at an average of 32.65 with five 5-wicket hauls.

Indian players give a guard of honour to South Africa's Jacques Kallis, who made an unbeaten 78 as rain interrupted play on the 3rd day of the test match between India and South Africa in Durban. Jacques Kallis, regarded as one of the greatest all-rounders of all time, had announced before the Durban Test against India that "the time is right to hang up my Test whites." In 165 Tests, Kallis has made 13174 runs, taken 292 wickets and 199 catches.

Jacques The Ripper
KALLIS is going. The only all-rounder of our times worthy of a seat in a pantheon of greats ranging from Wilfred Rhodes to the ’80s quartet via Benaud and Sobers won’t be seen in Test whites after 2013: how poor 2014 is already! For the record: 13,174 runs at an average mileage of 55.12 and 292 wickets.

And if the Durban test would be remembered for how Zaheer's return made all the difference and Harbhajan's spell helped turn the tables, it was this image of Jacques Kallis being dismissed by Sreesanth that would forever remain etched as the defining image of the match. Who was it having trouble with the bounce, you said?
