Former India captain Rahul Dravid paid rich tributes to legendary South African all-rounder Jacques Kallis, terming him “second only to Sachin Tendulkar” as the Proteas great pushes for a fifth World Cup appearance in Australia and New Zealand, next year.

“I think he’s (Kallis) going to end up with some really record-breaking numbers. I think he’ll probably be second only to Tendulkar’s numbers overall,” Dravid said on ‘Modern Masters’, a new video series on ESPNcricinfo.com.

“He seems pretty fit in spite of his workload. What’s fascinating is he’s hardly had any major injuries considering he bats, bowls. It’s almost unheard of and he looks like he can go on for a while,” Dravid said.
