Durban: Jacques Kallis became the second fielder to take 200 catches in Test cricket when he held a sharp chance to dismiss Ravindra Jadeja on the second day of the second and final Test between South Africa and India at Kingsmead on Friday.

Kallis, playing in his 166th and final Test match, joined India's Rahul Dravid, who held 210 catches in 164 matches.

Jadeja edged a ball from off-spinner JP Duminy and Kallis dived low and to his left at slip to hold the chance.
