‘One of modern-day greats’: Tributes pour in for Amla
Social media has been flooded with tributes for South Africa great Hashim Amla following his announcement of retiring from all formats of the international game.
Amla, who scored over 18,600 runs recording 55 centuries and 88 half-centuries in the process, on Thursday, brought an end to his 15-year-old long stellar career.
Former Proteas skipper AB de Villiers took to social media and said: “Unreal career Hashim Amla! So many doubted u early on, but your fighting spirit, humility and incredible one of a kind talent took u to the top of the mountain and ultimately to one of the best players in the world and certainly I’ve ever seen. Congrats on an amazing career.”
