Evening with Jacques Kallis and Friends
In association with the Jacques Kallis Foundation.
June 17th: 6.30-9pm: Morton's, Berkeley Square, Mayfair.
Come and meet a contender to be the greatest cricketer in history over drinks, canapes and conversation in Mayfair during the middle of the Cricket World Cup. The facts are staggering. In a 20-year international career for South Africa the great Jacques Kallis scored 13,289 runs (making him the 3rd-highest run scorer in test match history), 45 tons, 58 half centures and a batting average of over 55. He also took 292 wickets! In one day internationals he scored a further 11,579 runs - including 17 tons and 86 half centuries - and took 273 wickets. He is the only cricketer in history to have scored over 10,000 runs and taken over 250 wickets in both test and ODI cricket. Jacques, the current coach of the IPL team Kolkata Knight Riders, will talk about his stellar career and also be raising funds and awareness for his own Foundation. Joining him on the night will be other South African notables, including former Springbok captain Bob Skinstad who will be talking about the forthcoming rugby world cup.
