GALLERY: Jacques Kallis through the ages

Richardson, said: “Jacques Kallis will go down as one of the greatest all-round cricketers in the history of the game. Since making his international debut at the age of 20, he has been a mainstay of the South African line-up in all forms of the game.

“During his illustrious career spanning nearly two decades, Jacques played a total of 519 internationals in which he scored 25 534 runs with 62 centuries and took 577 wickets, besides 338 catches. To maintain such a high level of form and fitness in international cricket, is an incredible feat and should be an inspiration for younger generation of cricketers aspiring to be bracketed in the league of legends of the sport.

“Jacques played the game in a highly competitive manner and he can look back on his career with great pride. We wish Jacques and his family well with the next exciting phase of their lives.”
