Gwalior:

South African skipper Jacques Kallis heaped praise on Sachin Tendulkar for his historic double ton and said the way the champion batsman paced his innings it showed one need not be a slogger to do well in one-day cricket.

"He is a classic batsman. He played authentic shots and showed you do not need to slog to play well in One-dayers," Kallis said.

Dejection written all over his face, Kallis rued his team did not play according to the plan and asked the guys to pull up their socks before the 2011 World Cup.

"It was a small field and we lost wickets in a hurry. We could not execute our plans. We need to do a lot of work ahead of the World Cup," he added.
