Cullinan says India-Proteas match 'degenerated into Kallis show'

Johannesburg, Dec. 30 : Former South African cricketer Daryll Cullinan reportedly said that the match between India and the Proteas had degenerated into the Kallis show in Jacques Kallis' final Test.

Cullinan, on ESPN's cricinfo show 'Match Point', said that Jacques Kallis was a great cricketer, but take a step back from that, there is a Test match on the go and there is a series to win and he didn't get the impression that South Africa were interested in that.

According to Sport24, the former cricketer further discussed how South Africa had failed to seize the initiative to take control of the match by slowing down after tea on day three of the second Test.

Cullinan pointed that a few bowlers that played against South Africa never felt that Kallis could hurt them, they felt they could bowl at him, and that there were always more dangerous players around him.

He said that he always felt Kallis often misses the opportunity to stamp his authority on the game, that's why there will always be question marks over where he fits in the bigger picture of the true cricketing greats.

The report said that Kallis went on to score 115 runs in what is likely to be his final innings on day four of the second Test against India.
