Undoubtedly the most exceptional all-rounder in the history of cricket, Jacques Kallis, has illuminated the US Masters T10 league with his exceptional skills. In a riveting display reminiscent of his prime, Kallis exhibited his mastery against bowlers like Sohail Tanveer, evoking memories of his dominant era. Witness the remarkable feat: 47-year-old Jacques Kallis unleashed a blistering knock of 64 runs off just 31 balls in the US T10 League.
Following the cancellation of two initial matches due to weather conditions, spectators were treated to a splendid performance by Kallis. The seasoned South African all-rounder led his team to a colossal total of 158 runs after the early dismissal of Finch in the very first over.
Amidst the clash between the Texas Chargers and California Knights, fans were treated to an onslaught by the Knights’ duo: Kallis and Milind Kumar. In the initial innings, Knights faced the setback of losing their opener, Aaron Finch, within the first two deliveries as Fidel Edwards found the edge of his bat.
Kallis, making his return to the field after a prolonged absence, delivered a masterclass by amassing an unbeaten 64 runs from a mere 31 deliveries, including 8 boundaries and 3 sixes. Despite Kallis’s exceptional performance, the limelight was stolen by Milind Kumar, who struck a powerful 76 runs off 28 balls, punishing every bowler in his path, including Umar Gul and Pragyan Ojha.
Kallis demonstrated his sheer class in the inaugural game of their campaign against the Texas Chargers in the United States. He formed a dynamic partnership of 158 runs with Milind Kumar, an Indian cricketer hailing from Sikkim.
