Former Proteas great Jacques Kallis will be honored by South Africa's Sports and Recreation Minister Fikile Mbalula during the third Test between South Africa and Australia to be played at Newlands in Cape Town.


According to Sport24, the WPCA said the tribute would be paid on the second day of the final test against Australia, which will run from March 1-5.

Speculation is also rife about a stand at Newlands being named after Kallis, but a decision is yet to be taken officially on this.

Kallis played 166 Test matches, scoring 13289 runs in an illustrious career spanning 18 years for South Africa.
