    ****'s sake. I had high hopes of him reaching 300 wickets at least. Such a shame. The best cricketer of my generation by a considerable distance.

    Didn't get quite his due for the majority of his career. All that changed in the final few years where the cricket world recognised what a freak he really is. Only fitting now that he's quite obviously losing his form, he goes out on top.

    Would sort of love it if he smashes a double and takes a bagful of wickets and a few slip catches in the Durban test against us....

    And loses the natch obviously

    Great, great career. Best cricketer of the last 15 years

    As I once hoped, Kallis wisely decides to retire with his stats intact, unlike guys like Tendulkar, Ponting and co.

    I too hoped for 13.500 and 300. The very last all-rounder gone?

    So who to replace him in the test team?

    Good grief, they're dropping like flies.

    I fear for test cricket sometimes.

    Well done Kallis - an especially fine batsman, and very decent bowler

    I thought the fact 'Shrek the Third' was on TV tonight was a sign.

    Well played old chap!

    Great career, but I guess he knew the blip in form was something more lasting.

    You just don't replace a player like him, that's his legacy.

    I still feel the need to underrate him, probably because what he achieved is inexplicably huge.

    On ya big man. I think SA will find they need him a bit more than is being made out right now.
