Kallis departs on 120

2009-12-17 11:21

Jacques Kallis fell to James Anderson as South Africa moved to 283 for five on the morning of the second day of the first Castle test against England at SuperSport Park in Centurion on Thursday.


97th over: Duminy reaches his third test fifty in some style as he punches an Anderson delivery past mid-off for four. Duminy reached the landmark off 120 balls while striking six fours and a six.

Anderson enjoys a moment of success though as he snares Kallis’ wicket with a delivery that finds the outside edge of Kallis’ bat before being caught by Paul Collingwood at second slip.

Kallis is out for a superb 120 off 225 balls that included 14 fours and a six. His fifth-wicket partnership of 124 off 258 balls he shared with Duminy is at an end.

96th over: Kallis squeezes as Onions delivery past backward point for four.

92nd over: Kallis rocks back and cracks an Anderson delivery past point for four.

91st over: The weather is set fair in Centurion as Jacques Kallis, on 112, and JP Duminy, on 38, resume their fifth-wicket stand that is worth 103 runs. Duminy will face the first ball of the day to be bowled by James Anderson.

Duminy drives the second ball of the morning past mid-off for four.


South Africa - Graeme Smith (capt), Ashwell Prince, Hashim Amla, Jacques Kallis, AB de Villiers, JP Duminy, Mark Boucher (wk), Paul Harris, Morne Morkel, Friedel de Wet, Makhaya Ntini.

England - Alistair Cook, Andrew Strauss (capt), Jonathan Trott, Kevin Pietersen, Paul Collingwood, Ian Bell, Matt Prior (wk), Stuart Broad, Graeme Swann, James Anderson, Graham Onions.

    And now for the moaning and groaning from people who know nothing of cricket. Well done Kallis! You saved the day.

    useless.... i really expeced kallis to be better and get at least 200.i expect at least 120 from dumminy

  • 200 less Kallis - 2009-12-17 11:49

    As great a cricketer Kallis is, he is most unlikely to score 200+ because he scores too slowly, and he suffers from overnight not-out, but immediately out next day fever......

    why are our S.A. players wearing black arm bands?

    @THE MAN: Useless? eh, 120 on test level is not useless.... Dissapointing maybe that he didn't go on to 200, but def not useless

    The black armband is for Graeme Smith's grandfather who passed away.

  • AJ @ bernie - 2009-12-17 12:57

    Smith's grandfather died earlier in the week.

    I hope all the Kallis & Boucher bashers shut their traps now.

  • Piet - 2009-12-17 13:28

    What is so great about this guy. He is too slow, and inconsistant. he could have stayed at home.
