Jacques Kallis has taken his batting to another level by making a few technical adjustments.
The accumulator is now the dominator. Caution has been replaced with confrontation, and a fear of failure with a freedom of expression. Introducing the new, improved Kallis, South Africa’s greatest post-apartheid batsman. Fully adaptable to Test, ODI and T20 cricket. Able to stamp his authority on a match, put doubt into the minds of opposition bowlers and entertain the crowds.
