Durban - The South African cricket fraternity heaped praise on all-rounder Jacques Kallis, who announced on Wednesday that he will retire from Test and first-class cricket after the conclusion of the second Test against in India in Durban.
"Jacques' calmness, maturity and presence in the change room will sorely
be missed and hopefully he will still be able to play a role in this
team's success in the near future.
"He has certainly played his part in making our cricket a truly national
sport of winners. I look forward to see how in the years ahead we can
engage his superb knowledge and experience. He is far too valuable and
no doubt will have much to offer."
