Former South African cricketer, Jacques Kallis is a former Test and ODI captain. As a right-handed batsman and right-arm fast-medium swing bowler, Kallis is regarded as one of the greatest cricketers of all time and one of the game’s greatest all-rounders.
As of 2016 he was the only cricketer in the history of the game to score more than 10,000 runs and take over 250 wickets in both ODI and Test match cricket, pouching 131 ODI catches along the way as well. His Test match career in particular saw him score 13,289 runs, take 292 wickets and 200 catches respectively.
He stands with Jack Richards who played in eight Tests and 22 ODIs for England from 1981 to 1988. He was a wicket-keeper and a useful lower-middle order batsman, who made 133 for England against Australia at the WACA, Perth in 1987.
Both are incredible supporters of our Stadium For Cornwall Campaign, with Jack Richards fronting our public relations and getting other accomplished athletes on board, including Wasim Akram, Shahid Afridi, Mike Hussey, Matt Prior and Monty Panesar.
