Video - Kallis Says Records Unimportant

Watch as retired South African all-rounder Jacques Kallis says that breaking records during his distringuished career was 'unimportant' to him.

He ended his career as the Proteas beat India by 10 wickets to seal a 1-0 series win after Kallis passed Rahul Dravid to become the third highest run-scorer in Test cricket.

The only man to score more than 10,000 runs and take over 250 wickets, he says records were not part of his motivation while playing the game.

"I have never played the game for records and stats and all that kind of stuff," he said.

"I have always played the game to try and make the best calls and play the situation of the game. Records have never been important to me.

"Maybe one day, now I have finished, I can look back with pride at what I have achieved but it was certainly never at the front of my thinking to try and beat certain records."
