We have to accept we don't have enough world-class leg-spinners in our country. So, this is a learning curve for the youngsters in our team, Kallis told <i>PTI</i> in an interview. <p></p> <p></p> Even we went through the same phase and we learnt with time, said the man who scored more than 25,000 runs in international cricket. <p></p> <p></p>For someone, who faced Shane Warne and Anil Kumble at their prime with fair degree of success during, Kallis feels there is no one perfect technique to counter leg-spinners. <p></p> <p></p> Experience is the key. There are basically two ways to read leg-break bowling. Either you pick up from wrists or wait for the ball to pitch. No two batsmen would employ the same technique, he explained. <p></p> <p></p> As one plays more international cricket, he would know what works best for him. Everyone devise their own mechanism to get out of trouble, he said. <p></p> <p></p>He agreed with former teammate and skipper Graeme Smith that there is a lack of depth in the next batch of South African batsmen. <p></p> <p></p> Probably South Africa must have realised by now that they don t have much depth when senior cricketers (AB de Villiers and Faf du Plessis) get injured, he opined. <p></p> <p></p>[link-to-post url https://www.cricketcountry.com/news/virat-kohlis-aggression-can-prove-to-be-harmful-for-india-in-the-long-run-believes-jacques-kallis-686249"][/link-to-post] <p></p> <p></p> They (CSA) need to look carefully about how they will expose youngsters to international cricket. <p></p> <p></p>One of the finest all-rounders of his time, Kallis feels that playing three formats takes its toll on a modern cricketer s body and hence there aren t too many noteworthy all-rounders in the international circuit. <p></p> <p></p> The history of the game will tell you that there weren't many all-rounders in the game ever. More so now, because of the amount of cricket that is being played, he observed. <p></p> <p></p>But whatever little he has seen of Hardik Pandya, Kallis feels that the Indian does have the potential to do consistently well in the international arena. <p></p> <p></p> He (Hardik) is still young and has got a lot to learn along the way. But yeah, he looks a good prospect.
