Jacques Kallis is one of the most reliable all-rounders that the South African side possesses. A dependable batsman and a bowler in testing times, he has put up crucial yet less spectacular performances for his team. He is a fine slip fielder and has the knack of playing a variety of strokes.

The right hander has been a lucky charm throughout his stint with the South African team; he debuted against England on 14 December 1995. His international career was sluggish initially, however it has been rampaging in the last decade. In the 2003-04 series against the West Indies, Kallis got a hundred in each of the four Tests. As a bowler, he has claimed many five and four wicket hauls. His records boast the likes of Gary Sobers, as he is one of the few cricketers to amass huge number of runs as well as wickets in both ODIs and Tests. He has portrayed himself as the toughest both mentally and physically

Kallis scored the highest number of runs for South Africa during the 2007 World Cup with 435 runs to his credit. However, he was criticized for his slow innings and was eventually dropped for World Twenty20 in 2007 at home. But he proved his mettle again after he was recalled to the team for the Pakistan tour in 2007.

Kallis founded the Jacques Kallis Scholarship Foundation which promotes a combination of academic and life skills programmes in schools. His achievements are many and he has been awarded the ICC Test Player of the Year 2005, ICC Player of the Year 2005 and Wisden Leading cricketer of the Year 2007.
