Hashim Amla retired from international cricket, then said something that won hearts: South Africa’s legendary cricketer Hashim Amla retired in international cricket on Thursday from all three formats but will continue to play domestic cricket. Amla, known for his artistic batting, is the fourth South African player to retire after the World Cup. Imran Tahir and JP Duminy retired soon after the World Cup, while Stein announced his retirement from Test cricket three days ago. Amala said in the statement, “First of all thanks to Khuda who got the opportunity to wear the South African jersey which is a pleasure and honor.
I learned many lessons, made many friends and shared the most important love brotherhood in this unique journey. The artistic batsman made his Test debut in 2004 against India in Kolkata. He made his ODI debut four years later in 2008 and in T20 International in 2009. He played his last match in the recently concluded World Cup.
Amla, in his 15-year career, scored 9282 runs in 124 Tests at an average of 46.64, including 28 centuries and 41 half-centuries. He scored 8113 runs in 181 ODIs with an average of 49.46 and 27 centuries. He scored 1277 runs in 44 T20 Internationals to his name. His highest score in Tests is an unbeaten 311 runs which is a South African record. Ending his statement with ‘love and peace’, Amla also thanked those who made significant contributions in his career.
He said, “I thank my parents for their prayers, love and support.” It was because of his blessings that I played for South Africa for so long. Apart from this, my family, friends and agents, my teammates and members of the support staff during this visit, I express my deep gratitude to everyone. Expressed.
