He has been one of the greatest all-rounder ever to have played the game but for Jacques Kallis [ Images ] reaching his maiden double century is an emotional moment that he will remember all his life.
"It still hasn't sunk in probably. You get caught up in a Test match trying to win and thinking about how to take the wickets. It will probably hit home when I walk out in Durban and see 201 on the scoreboard," man-of-the-match Kallis said.
"It's something (201) I am really proud of what I have achieved. I realised how much it meant to myself and my team-mates and all the supporters. I've had an unbelievable number of well wishers," he added.
The veteran all-rounder admitted that he was nearly in tears when he got standing ovation from the spectators at the Supersport Park in Centurion.
"The ovation that I got, I had to breathe not to let the tears start flowing. It really meant a lot to me. It's something I will remember for the rest of my life," he said.
