Ray White: Kallis always held his nerve
The ability to handle pressure and show true professionalism are some of the biggest qualities displayed by one of South Africa's best cricketers of all time - Jacques Kallis.
In his final test, Kallis kept his nerve as he always does, passing the 100 mark, with Kingsmead standing to honour him.
Kallis is saying goodbye to the Proteas, 18 years after he started his career, but he certainly will not be forgotten.
He hit 45 test centuries.
Kallis is regarded as one of the greatest all-rounders of all time with the ability to steady the middle order.

He became the first cricketer in the history of the game to score more than 11,000 runs and take 250 wickets in both one-day and Test match cricket.
Kallis was named leading cricketer in the world in the 2008 Wisden - in addition to being the ICC test player of the year and ICC player of the year in 2005.

He has been described by Kevin Pietersen and Daryll Cullinan as the greatest cricketer to play the game along with Walter Hammond and Sir Garry Sobers.
The team came out to greet him after he hit 115 in Durban on Sunday - saluting a true champion.
A number of youngsters cheered on as their hero left the field, leaving many a youngster dreaming that they too will be a great cricketer one day.
For his last match, Kallis received a guard of honour. Ray White is EWN's weekend assignments editor.
