South African legend Hashim Amla celebrated his 100th Test by cruising to a hundred on the first day of the third Test against Sri Lanka at Johannesburg. Here’s a look at his some of his videos over the year, as an attempt to trace his journey.
Amla’s debut innings: Hashim Amla made his debut against India at Kolkata in November-December 2004. He was bowled by Irfan Pathan for 24. Here are highlights of the innings.
Amla creates history: The batsman’s finest moment was his 311 not out vs England at The Oval in July 2012. Amla faced 529 balls and hit 35 fours. Thanks to Amla’s brilliance, South Africa won the game by an innings and 12 runs.
Love for India: Amla just loved playing against India. This 140 in the first Test of the series in 2010 at Centurion is just another proof. The Proteas again won by an innings.
Ever seen Amla bowling? He did so against Australia at Brisbane during the 2012/13, and without much success as evident from his weird bowling action.
And finally, here’s Amla batting in his 100th Test, at his serene best.
