This love in is quite sickening. Callum McLeod would have outscored Amla if he was in a tier one team. We just play cricket up here so we can beat england now and again. We don't even take it seriously.
Hashim Amla is vying with Moeen Ali for the title of longest beard in Cricket.
A great player! Wish him well in retirement.Age is not on his side and that bouncer from Archer can't have fuelled his hunger to carry on. Hope he does well in whatever comes next!
@ 155Yes transfer the beard northwards..
A great batsman, who dominated many an attack, including Australia in Australia. Maybe he could now get into hair replacement advertising like Shane Warne did :)
Does Moeen Ali model himself after Hashim Amla in more ways than one ?
As an England supporter I'm glad to see the back of him. As a cricket fan, he will leave a big void in the game
Great player , will be missed :) good luck and thank you
A superb batsman in all formats which is a feat in itself; South Africa will have to go through a huge period of change and will need to invest in order to remain competitive and stop players moving to county cricket.
Sad to see him go. He analysed the pitch, the state of the game and the strengths of the bowlers then adapted his game accordingly. A great cricket brain.
He has the skills and mental toughness to score runs and build an innings in any conditions. A true batting craftsman. Hope he goes on to become a top coach.
We should get him over here. The way things are going he would still improve our test team in 5 or 7 years, or whenever he qualifies.
Modern day great. Will miss watching him play.
An example to the so called super stars around the world.Never saw him lose his temper or through a tantrum.
An outstanding player and even late in his career will be badly missed by the Proteas

A quiet legend - superb batsman. Amla will be very much missed; it was a privilege to watch him play.
Lots of runs, more than a very decent average yet somehow I get the feeling he didn't fully realise his potentialThat huge stand with Kallis v England when he scored a triple century - you would have thought that was the springboard to dominance
He has always struck me as an unassuming character but very profesional in his conduct, unlike some others that are around. Thank you Hashim for the pleasure you have given many a cricket fan.
