Kallis makes it two-man club

South African all-rounder Jacques Kallis claimed his 200th Test wicket on Saturday and joined West Indies legend Sir Garfield Sobers in an exclusive two-man club.

On the second day of the third and final Test against New Zealand, the 30-year-old dismissed Black Caps skipper Stephen Fleming to join Sobers as the only players to have scored 8000 runs and taken 200 wickets in Tests.

"It's a special club, obviously, and it's an honour to join it," said Kallis.

"It will probably mean more to me after I have finished playing when it begins to sink in and I can look back and see what I have achieved. I'm very proud of joining a man like him."

Kallis is playing in his 102nd Test here at The Wanderers.
