Hashim Amla annuncia il ritiro dal International Cricket

South Africa’s batting star Hashim Amla has retired from international cricket. He will continue to play domestic cricket and T20 leagues.

Amla, 36, has played 124 Tests, 181 One-Day Internationals and 44 Twenty20 Internationals. He has 9282, 8113 and 1277 runs in the three formats respectively, scoring a total of 55 international centuries.

Amla made his international debut in 2004 in a Test against India in Kolkata, and played his last match for South Africa in the World Cup 2019 game against Sri Lanka where he made an unbeaten 80.

“Firstly, all Glory and thanks to the Almighty for granting me this Proteas journey which has been nothing but a joy and privilege,” Amla said in a statement. “I learnt many lessons during this incredible ride, made many friends and most importantly shared in the love of a brotherhood called #proteafire.

“I would like to thank my parents for their prayers, love and support, it is their shadow over me that enabled me to play for years under the Protea sun.

“Also, My family, friends and agent, my team mates and every member of the support staff throughout this incredible journey. A heartfelt thank you to every one of you!

“The fans for energizing me when times were tough, and for celebrating with me when we succeeded together. Siyabonga South Africa!

“And, of course, a very special thanks to the President and the Board at Cricket South Africa – not forgetting the Chief Executive, Mr Thabang Moroe, and his administrative team. I really appreciate all the opportunities and am truly grateful.

“Love and peace.”
