South Africa‘s veteran all-rounder Jacques Kallis became the second all-rounder after Sri Lankan Sanath Jayasuriya to score 1,000 runs and pick up 20 wickets in the World Cup. During South Africa‘s 131-run win over Ireland at the Eden Gardens on Tuesday, Kallis picked up two for 20 and scored 19 runs and took his tally of ODI runs to 11,111 at an average of 45.35, including 17 hundreds and 81 fifties in 312 matches.

Kallis took his run-aggregate in the World Cup to 1,032 at an average of 44.86 in 34 matches - a tally better only by compatriot Herschelle Gibbs - 1,067 at an average of 56.15 in five matches.

Kallis was run out during his innings and his tally of three run outs in the World Cup is the most for South Africa.
