South African all-rounder Jacques Kallis turned emotional on the last day of his Test career. He thanked friends, family and fans on popular social media website.

 

 

The final day of the second Test against India at Durban will be his last day of Test career, that started 18 years ago against England at Durban.

 

Even though he announced retirement from Test and First-Class cricket, Kallis will be available for the shorter format of the game.

 

Kallis was quoted as saying by cricket.co.za, “It’s been an honour and a privilege to have been part of the South African Test team since making my debut 18 years ago. I have enjoyed every moment out in the middle but I just feel that the time is right to hang up my Test whites.”

 

“It wasn’t an easy decision to come to, especially with Australia around the corner and the success this team is enjoying, but I feel that I have made my contribution in this format.”
