Talisman Jacques Kallis

South Africa all-rounder Jacques Kallis is the closest to Sir Garfield Sobers in the mordern day game. He has played many more Tests than Sobers but is right up there in terms of consistency - both with bat and ball.

He went past the 10,000-run mark in one-day cricket during South Africa's win over Australia at Sydney on Friday.
