Arguably South Africa’s greatest ever player, the Sydney Thunder were able to sign him for the BBL. 

Having played for over 20 years, Kallis is a man-mountain on the world stage and since his recent retirement will travel playing T20 cricket exclusively. 

His record with both bat and ball is spectacular, closing in on 4,000 runs and 100 wickets in more than 150 matches in the shortest format. 

A former Test and ODI captain, Jacques Kallis brings a wealth of knowledge to the Thunder line-up and will no doubt be amongst the wickets and runs.

166 Tests (45 centuries) and 328 ODI's (17 centuries) with an average of 55.47 and 44.36 respectively with the bat says it all.

He also took 292 Test and 273 ODI wickets to go along with 331 catches in both formats.

A true champion of the game.
