    "Jacques Kallis is actually one of the few that has adapted to all formats of the game and survived. Remarkable. Statistically he is the greatest allrounder ever in the history of the game"

    I mean, shit, that was a bit dominant from the Windies.

    I’m enjoying this tournament.

    Kallis, however, could remain a part of the Knight Riders brand, according to team CEO Venky Mysore.

    "Jacques Kallis has been an integral part of the KKR family and will always remain so," Mysore said, while announcing the changes. "We will be exploring ways of working with Jacques as we pursue our vision of establishing the Knight Riders brand as a global brand."

    Kallis, too, released a statement following the decision.

    "After nine fantastic years with KKR since 2011, as a player, mentor and Head Coach, it's time to explore new opportunities," he said. "I would to like to thank the owners, management and fellow players for many happy memories."

    The great man is back

    This is on par when Parra brought in Jack Gibson in 1981 for mine.....

    Jacques Kallis named South Africa's batting consultant for the summer

    Jacques Kallis will join South Africa's backroom staff as a batting consultant for the summer, completing the support staff of the new regime. Kallis and Charl Langeveldt, who opted out of a two-year-deal with Bangladesh after just five months to take on the role of bowling coach, have been confirmed as being part of Mark Boucher's staff.

    That brings the total number of former internationals involved to five with Graeme Smith in the role of director of cricket for the next three months, Boucher as head coach until 2023, Kallis and Langeveldt as batting and bowling consultants respectively, and Ashwell Prince in charge of the South African A side.

    South Africa's men's team are currently at a training camp in Pretoria, preparing for a four-Test series against England which starts on Boxing Day. The squad for the first two Tests was named on Monday and includes six uncapped players.

    I feel like SA need to be careful here... They're falling into the trap of thinking that their great players will also be great coaches and administrators

    Are you a staff member now??? What's going on here haha...

    But yes, I think it's fair to say that even at 44 years old (he looks about 24), he would still be SAs best bastmen even at this current stage in time. Wish he'd come out of retirement tbh....

    Oh come Hiney mate,
    Yeah good to be back it's been a while haha good to see the same faces here, how have you been? Can't quite explain my absence, I guess growing up and joining the real world does that to ya haha. Had some great days on here going back 10 years or so, but I'm gonna try and come back more often now, especially with Parra and Souths going half decent these days pre covid 19 lol. We won't start with the Black Caps embarrassing tour last year as no matter how good we're going, we'll always get done by you Aussies haha.

    Still shocks me how PB is a mod lol. What's doing there, not even he knows.....
