Jacques Kallis, Lisa Stalker and Zaheer Abbas included in ICC Hall of Fame
Every year, the International Cricket Council (ICC) inducts legendary cricketers into the Hall of Fame in recognition of their outstanding performances in cricket. The governing body of world cricket has included three new honours this year. This time Jacques Kallis of South Africa, Lisa Stalker of Australia and Zaheer Abbas of Pakistan were included in ICC Hall of fame.
Jacques Kallis has scored 10,000 runs and taken more than 200 wickets in both the International Test and ODI formats. He has won the Man of the Match award a record 23 times in the Test format. He is also South Africa’s highest run-getter in both Test and ODI formats.
Aussie women’s cricketer Lisa Stalker won the World Cup in 2005 and 2013. He also won the 2010 and 2012 T20 World Cups. The all-rounder became the first woman cricketer in history to touch the milestone of 1,000 runs and 100 wickets in ODIs.
Zaheer Abbas, who was inducted into the ICC Hall of Fame this year, was also known as the Run Machine. He is the first cricketer to score a century in five consecutive matches in international cricket. The Pakistani cricketer is the only Asian batsman to score 100 centuries in first-class cricket.
