DURBAN, South Africa (AP) -- Jacques Kallis made a century in his final test for South Africa on Sunday to say farewell with a 45th career hundred.
Kallis went to three figures with a nudge to mid-on on the fourth day of the second test against India and celebrated by removing his helmet and lifting both arms in the air as he faced the team dressing room.
India's fielders and coach Duncan Fletcher also applauded the 38-year-old allrounder.
Kallis is second on the all-time list of century-makers in test cricket behind India's Sachin Tendulkar, who finished with 51. He announced on Christmas Day that he would retire from tests after his 166th appearance for his country at Kingsmead -- the same ground he made his debut at as a 20-year-old prodigy in 1995.
