Summary

  • NEW DELHI: Former South African all-rounder Jacques Kallis has figured out why his country’s batsmen are struggling against Indian wrist-spinners Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav — the Proteas are not facing bowlers like those in the domestic circuit at all.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Kallis will be back in India in a month’s time as the chief coach of IPL franchise the Kolkata Knight Riders and is happy with the balance of that side.
  • “We have got an experienced side and our first XI, as of now, looks pretty settled,” Kallis said about KKR’s squad composition.
