Profile

The classiest, calmest man on a cricket field, Hashim Amla's name is etched in South African cricket history. With his wristy leg-side flick and serene cover drive, Amla became the first South African to score a triple century in Test cricket, while also effectively shifting gears to become the fastest batsman to 2,000 (40 innings), 3,000 (57 innings), 4,000 (81 innings) and 5,000 (101 innings) runs in ODI cricket.

Timeline
    • Nov 28-Dec 2, 2004
      A modest beginning
      • Hashim Amla was highly rated in South African circles when he made his Test debut, but the start to his international career was distinctly modest: against India in Kolkata, he scores 24 and 2, and then adds only 36 more in his next four Test innings, at home against England. The result: no more Test cricket for the next 15 months.
    • Apr 27-May 1, 2006
      Hitting back
      • Given another chance at Test cricket, Amla grabs it with both hands, scoring 149 against New Zealand in Cape Town, his maiden Test century.
    • November 8-20, 2007
      New Zealand conquered, again
      • After going 23 innings without a Test century, Amla takes advantage of yet another tour by New Zealand. This time he goes one better, scoring hundreds in successive Tests, including an unbeaten 176 in Johannesburg.
