Jacques Kallis is fitter than he looks

Jacques Kallis - body of an athlete

Jacques Kallis bowled a ball at about 90mph today. Generally speaking, he was bowling faster than Philander, Steyn and Morkel.

Despite looking more like a rugby player, Kallis has always been pretty slippery when the mood’s taken him. It’s astonishing that he can still do this when he’s 36-years-old. Few can do it at all at that age, let alone those who’ve played 400-and-odd international matches.

The average quick bowler covers about 15 miles a day during a Test match. Even the wicketkeeper averages about 10. Kallis doesn’t clock too many overs, but he does bat a bit. In fact, wait a minute – didn’t he hit 224 earlier in this match?

Maybe his new hair is impregnated with nandrolone. You thought it was vanity that led to his new mane, but it was actually a desire for an intrafollicular supply of anabolic steroids.

  1. Absolute beast of a man. I definitely would.

  2. Why does an average quick bowler cover 15 miles in a day? Are they bored after running the 20 x 30 x 6 = 3600m = 2.25 miles they must run to bowl 30 overs off a 20m run-up?

  3. Kallis’ run-up is more like 5 metres and he doesn’t have a huge follow through. I bet those extra miles come from popping off the field every few overs to check the new follicles are still firmly and resolutely in place.
