Hashim Amla retires from cricket

I hate goodbyes, can’t stand them when it’s the right person, but when it’s the wrong person, good riddance. In the case of South African cricket legend Hashim Amla however, his cricket peers can’t get enough of him.

South African Hashim Amla has announced is to retire from all cricket. I hope you were sitting down for such shocking news.

Amla, who is a devout Muslim, won the hearts of his Muslim brothers for not wearing The Proteas’ team jersey, that was sponsored by an alcoholic beverage company.

Hashim Amla was more than just a role model sports man, if you believe the word on the street, then you will believe he is my stunt double. Yeah, the times he got out for a duck, I was batting.

The former captain, holds the record for the record being the fastest player to score 2,000 runs, 3,000, 5,000,6,000 and 7000 runs. Amla, also did very well in the longer format, memorably scoring an unbeaten triple ton, in extreme heat and whilst fasting.

Hashim Amla who hasn’t been playing for the national side, has been making a positive contribution in the English county game, in fact that 39-year-old won the County Championship with Surrey.

Amla was very active in contributing with the bat last year, he’s done it all his career. Hashim Amla retired as the second highest South African run scorer in tests, scoring just should of 10 , second to only Jacques Kallis.

Many have come before you and many will come after you, but Hashim Amla there will never be anything like you.

Shut up, you’re crying Amla’s retired from all cricket.
