    Hashim Amla retires from international cricket

    What a player. What a person. Good luck with your future. The Mighty #

    That back-foot punch was dreamy

    Hashim Amla's statement:

    Firstly, all Glory and thanks to the Almighty for granting me this Proteas journey which has been nothing but a joy and privilege. I learnt many lessons during this incredible ride, made many friends and most importantly shared in the love of a brotherhood called #proteafire.

    I would like to thank my parents for their prayers, love and support, it is their shadow over me that enabled me to play for years under the Protea sun.

    Also, My family, friends and agent, my team mates and every member of the support staff throughout this incredible journey. A heartfelt thank you to every one of you!

    The fans for energizing me when times were tough, and for celebrating with me when we succeeded together. Siyabonga South Africa!

    And, of course, a very special thanks to the President and the Board at Cricket South Africa - not forgetting the Chief Executive, Thabang Moroe, and his administrative team. I really appreciate all the opportunities and am truly grateful.

    Love and peace.

    - Hashim

    Great player with an outstanding peak between 2008 and 2013. Instrumental in SA winning twice in Australia and England and coming within a whisker of winning in India. So his impact was more than his final average will portray.

    My favourite player of the last 10+ years. Thank you for all your endeavours and the great times they brought. Will miss the great man.

    Two of my favourite foreign players retiring within a week. Sad stuff.

    Quality player. 2008-2012 he was stupidly good. Absolutely vital for their stretch of great overseas success.

    Hopefully a Kolpak contract beckons, but he'd best get in before 31/10, or the 'hostile environment' will be back

    Epic multi format player. One of the most aesthetically pleasing yet terrifying batsmen at his best.

    Absolutely sublime player in his prime, his extended decline was a shame - an overall average of 46-47 undersells him imo and it seemed, like it does with many top batsmen like he was hanging on longer than he might due to lack a of convincing replacements.

    Gun bowler too:

    Absolute beast at his peak. Always felt he was the biggest hurdle to get past when playing against SA for a period. Once he was gone you'd breathe a sigh of relief, even if it was after a gloriously beautiful century (or more). Well done lad.
