'Winemaker' Kallis mulling over playing in Big Bash League next season

Sydney, Jan 5 : Retired South African all-rounder Jacques Kallis is reportedly considering a stint in next season's Big Bash League following the statement of former Australian player Michael Hussey that declared the Sydney Thunder will definitely look to recruit Kallis.

Kallis recently retired from Test cricket, but still hopes to play in next year's World Cup in Australia and New Zealand.

According to, with the struggling Thunders failing to win in 17 matches, Kallis reckons some Big Bash hitting on Australian wickets would be the perfect lead-in to the tournament.

Until then, Kallis will have plenty of time to continue his new venture with best friend and former South African wicketkeeper Mark Boucher, with whom he has produced their own wine - a red and a white - called The Innings, the report added.
