I was nearly in tears when I got standing ovation: Kallis

"It still hasn't sunk in probably. You get caught up in a Test match trying to win and thinking about how to take the wickets. It will probably hit home when I walk out in Durban and see 201 on the scoreboard," man-of-the-match Kallis told reporters after the post-match press conference.

"It's something (201) I am really proud of what i have achieved. I realized how much it meant to myself and my teammates and all the supporters. I’ve had an unbelievable number of well wishers."

The veteran all-rounder admitted that he was nearly in tears when he got standing ovation from the spectators at the Supersport Park in Centurion.

"The ovation that I got, I had to breathe not to let the tears start flowing. It really meant a lot to me. It's something I will remember for the rest of my life," he said.
