Below is a video clip of Jacques Kallis filmed in South Africa discussing his signing for the Sydney Thunder.
The Sydney Thunder have pulled off one of the biggest coups of the year by signing South African superstar all-rounder Jacques Kallis for the next two seasons.
Seen by many as the greatest all-rounder to have ever played the game, Kallis, will bring his class and experience to the men in green as they continue to boost the strength of their squad heading into BBL|04.
The 38 year-old Kallis is a giant of the game.
A veteran of 166 Test matches, 325 One-Day Internationals and 25 T20 Internationals, Kallis, will provide outstanding all-round cricketing ability and big-match temperament to a Thunder side led by the experienced Mike Hussey.
Having just finished playing for the Kolkata Knight Riders in the IPL, the signing is a major boost for fans of the Thunder, with several other signings to be unveiled in coming weeks.
Sydney Thunder General Manager Nick Cummins is delighted to have signed a player of Kallis’s ability:
“Signing a player of Jacques’ quality and experience is phenomenal news for Thunder fans. He is one of the greatest cricketers to have ever played the game and apart from his experience and leadership, he is still a brilliant all-rounder who will give the side a quality top order batsman and versatile bowling option.
Just having a player of his stature around the group will be great for our young players and he will bring big match temperament and a winning attitude to our squad.”
