Durban: South Africa's opening batsman Alviro Petersen has said that Jacques Kallis in his last Test, is "playing the perfect innings for his team".
Petersen himself scored 62 runs, but deemed that Kallis' unbeaten knock of 78 as more important in placing the Proteas just 35 runs behind the visitors at close of play. (Day 3 report)
"Jacques played the perfect innings for the situation we were in. He hadn't faced a ball yet, when AB (de Villiers) walked in. To soak that pressure and to stay tall, in your last match, is phenomenal. He didn't look like he is playing his last Test. He looked in his prime," Petersen said at the day end press conference.
