Cape Town:

South Africa allrounder Jacques Kallis has become the fourth cricketer to pass 13,000 career Test runs.

The 37-year-old Kallis joined Indians Sachin Tendulkar and Rahul Dravid and former Australia captain Ricky Ponting with his push down to third man for four off Doug Bracewell on Wednesday's first day of the first Test against New Zealand at Newlands - Kallis' home ground.

Kallis passed the career milestone in his 159th Test and on a record-filled day in Cape Town.

Proteas fast bowler Dale Steyn became the joint third fastest bowler to 300 wickets with the first of his 2-18. Steyn helped send New Zealand to 45 all out, its third lowest score ever, the equal 12th lowest in Test history and the lowest at Newlands in over 100 years.
