Highlight Story

Jacques Kallis has scored his first double century in a test as South Africa declared on 620-4 against India on the third day of the first test on Saturday, a lead of 484 runs.

Captain Graeme Smith called off South Africa's onslaught when A B de Villiers was out for 129 soon after lunch, four balls after Kallis' 200.

The 35-year-old Kallis, with 37 test hundreds in 142 matches before this game, finally reached 200 with a glance down to fine leg for four off Jaidev Unadkat.

He was 201 not out off 277 balls, with 15 fours and five sixes, as South Africa added 254 runs to its overnight score for the loss of two wickets.

De Villiers had earlier blasted the fastest test century by a South African vs. India when he reached 100 off 75 balls.
