South African great Jacques Kallis, who recently retired from Test cricket will be felicitated by the country’s Sports and Recreation Minister Fikile Mbalula during the third Test between the Proteas and Australia to be played at Newlands in Cape Town.

 

According to Sport24, the Western Province Cricket Association (WPCA) said the tribute would be paid on the second day of the final test against Australia, which will run from March 1-5.

 

Speculation is also rife about a stand at Newlands being named after Kallis, but a decision is yet to be taken officially. Kallis played 166 Test matches, scoring 13,289 runs in an illustrious career spanning 18 years for South Africa.
