    Is Hashim Amla an ATG?

    A batting AVG close to 50 in both tests and ODIs and performance in all conditions and against all kinds of bowling attack.

    Do you think he is an ATG or even the best batsmen of his era?

    Discuss!

    I mean this could just be another thread where people spend time arguing about the extremely loose definition of the term 'ATG', or it could be a thread about beard memes.

    Post your beard memes.

    Amla is a RSA ATG, and one of the greats of his generation. He is not a ATG in general....

    If Sanga is an ATG then Amla is too

    What else he needs to do to become an ATG?

    Sanga started off as a WK and ended his career as a pure batsman with a remarkable average of 57+ in Test cricket.
    For a player to have initially shouldered the burdens of WKeeping and still end up with such a high average is ATG standout material.

    Amla needs to standout and be remembered somehow.

    Yeah Amla should have played on the roads of Sri Lanka to boost his average and then he could have been considered an ATG.

    Compare Statsguru for both.
    KS average is higher / equal in 6 other countries over his average in SLanka. His total away average is 53. If batting in SLanka was so easy then others should have similar high averages, yet no other SLankan batsman matches his feats. His batting in itself could qualify for ATG status. Throw in his glove work and it cements his position as an ATG.

    Amla is an easy ATG batsman given his exploits in both formats, he is not an ATG cricketer though.

    He's an SA ATG, just like Anderson is England ATG but not in the way someone like Kallis, Tendulkar, Warne are.

    Great player but still wouldn’t nudge into SA all time XI IMO. That said he’d make a NZ or SL all time XI probably so he’s near enough to an ATG

    Perhaps a handy definition of world ATG would be “would make NZ ATG XI”?

    His test achievements deserve serious acclaim, bossed it for one of the best test sides of the last 20 years, just a shame he could never do it in knock out limited overs competitions which hurts his legacy sadly.

    Setting a very low bar for ATG spinners....
