BREAKING NEWS: Kallis Strikes at a Rate of 100!

It was a record breaking day as Jacques Kallis scored 49 off 49 deliveries notching up a Strike Rate of 100, which is unheard of when it comes to Kallis.

He was delighted after this effort and was found waving his bat vigorously at his critics who have always claimed that he bats too selfishly.

His spirits though were slightly dampened as he realised that Hashim Amla, who not only got a big 100, but also scored at a Strike Rate of 103.70!!!

And if that wasn't enough, AB De Villiers walked to the crease after Kallis' dismissal and smashed 54 off only 27 deliveries, scoring at twice the Strike Rate that Kallis did.

Kallis' record breaking day wasn't looking all that record breaking anymore, but it kept getting worse for Kallis.

Albie Morkel decided to have some fun and smashed 3 sixes and as many fours to score an unbeaten whirlwind 37 at a Strike Rate of 284.61!!!

At the end of the innings, Kallis was seen with his head in his hands wondering why he always gets overshadowed.

Last, at the time of going to press, Tamim Iqbal was batting at a Strike Rate of 207.14 and Kallis' displeasure was evident on the field.

Match Scorecard.

    took me by surprise too. Amla's old school, yet he rocks.

    Another failure for Kallis - sooner or later he's going to have to convert these pretty 40s into 50s and 100s.
