Jacques Kallis is one of the valuable players of the South African Cricket team. He started his career with test matches and soon came to be world's leading batsman, with a defensive technique second-to-none, and the adhesive qualities of a Cape Point limpet. He plays at an important No. 3 position in the South African batting order after a number of players had been tried and discarded. In 2005, he was honoured as the ICC's Test and overall Player of the Year, after a run of performances against West Indies and England that marked him out as the biggest scalp in the modern game. He missed the first Test of South Africa's tour of Australia at the end of 2005 with an elbow problem, struggled facing Brett Lee at Melbourne and was hampered by the injury in making a patient and crucial 111 in the first innings at Sydney.
