In recent times, both India’s Sachin Tendulkar and and South African all-rounder Jacques Kallis announced their retirements though, Kallis is still available to play for South Africa in the shorter versions of the game. Indian opener Gautam Gambhir praised both legends of the game. However, he said that statistically Kallis is the greater player of the two. He also heaped praises on other greats like Ricky Ponting and Rahul Dravid. He said that they have been great servants of the game but the game moves on.


Gambhir currently finds himself out of the Indian squad and is looking to chart his way back into the squad with fine performances in the Ranji Trophy 2013-14.
