Cape Town - Minister of Sport and Recreation Fikile Mbalula will pay tribute to former Proteas great Jacques Kallis during the third Test against Australia at Newlands in Cape Town.

According to the EWN Twitter page, the WPCA confirmed that the tribute will take place of the second day (Sunday, March 2).

The third and final Test against Australia will run from March 1-5.

Meanwhile, no decision has been taken yet as to whether a stand at Newlands will be named after Kallis, but it's an "idea that has been raised".

Kallis, 38, retired from Test cricket after the recent India series, having played 166 Tests for South Africa, scoring 13 289 runs, including 45 centuries, in an illustrious career that spanned some 18 years.

Kallis will compete in this year's IPL for the Kolkata Knight Riders, having been sold for a staggering R10m in last year's auction.

Kallis has also made his intentions clear regarding representing the Proteas at next year's Cricket World Cup in Australia and New Zealand.
