    Amla has finally broken the 900 points barrier in test cricket.

    Currently on 903.

    Amla is such a gun......keeps getting better and better.......am waiting to see how SA perform in the UAE later in the year. I expect they should be able to put up a good fight if not win the series (unlike England in 2012)
    And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW

    Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta

    Without a doubt my favorite batsman right now. Just seems so serene while batting. I love that that circular motion his bat makes, so unorthodox but strangely beautiful.

    I've always thought he'd be awesome, and over the last few years he's been a lot more than simply awesome. One of the very few times my prediction about a cricketer has turned out right.
    That amazing hundred at Perth just blew me away and just confirmed what I'd been feeling for years... That he has the capability to end his career as an ATG. Also showed he can step it up a gear and wrestle the initiative with a blistering innings, which was the one thing I didn't think he could do. Absolute gun.

    The thing about that knock was that he didn't hit that many boundaries. Only had ten when he reached his hundred (off like 90 balls).

    Always keeps the scorecard ticking. With ABCD RSA can score heavy a lot of the times.

    After reading the first few posts of this thread, I find it really amazing just how much he's done in 3 years.

    An amazing call amidst a lot of posts that are in the "tasting it" region..
    We miss you, Fardin. :(. RIP.

    Yep, I made the right mental call about Amla the moment he played his first Test. Knew he would average 50. Shame I didn't create this thread.

    Yes, and in 1990 I knew Obama would be the US President in 2008 I just didn't create a thread either

    I expect him to average late 30s/early 40s over his career and that will do justice to what is a pretty poor technique for a top order player

    It'll be some good, some bad before a lot of bad towards the end of his career as his eyes fail him

    Good from this ****
    Indians can't bowl - Where has the rumour come from as I myself and many indian friends arwe competent fast bowlers ?

    With the English bid I said: Let us be brief. If you give back the Falkland Islands, which belong to us, you will get my vote. They then became sad and left

    He decided he'd play the first half of his career without them, just to see how he'd go without being able to see the ball.

    His fans all eagerly await the time they call "The coming of the contact lenses."
