No 37 for Kallis

It's number 37 for Jacques Kallis.

The world's greatest allrounder of all times is perhaps enjoying his best times with the willow. Kallis brought his 37th ton in Test cricket with a back-to-back century in the second Test against Pakistan. Not only was he severe on the bowlers, he came to the party when South Africa was tottering at 33/3. But Kallis, along with AB de Villiers, the other centurion on the day for SA, formed a 179-run partnership which rescued the team to a respectable 311/5 at stumps on Day 1. Kallis stroked 12 boundaries and 3 sixes in his 147 deliveries stay at the wicket for 105. By scoring this century, Kallis is within striking distance of reaching Ricky Ponting's 39 Test centuries. Another Royal Challenger Marc Boucher is still giving company to de Villers with an unbeaten 26 at the end of the day.

However, there was no such luck for Rahul Dravid who is still stranded at 199 Test catches when Indian bowlers ran through the New Zealanders in the third Test at Nagpur. Delayed by rain and wet outfields, the third Test finally got started post lunch when the Indian bowlers perfectly exploited the conditions to reduce the Kiwis to 148/7. Ross Taylor's misery with the bat continued as he could muster only 20 this time.

Staying in the international circuit, Cameron White finally found form with the bat, notching up a century against England XI, but couldn't prevent his team Australia A from a defeat. White cruised to 111 in the Aussie team's second innings score of 309. But England XI was left with a target of 11 to win the match which they did without any sweat.
