Bio

Consistency has been one of the hallmarks of Hashim Amla’s career to date. The batsman made his Test debut in 2004, but had to wait another four years before earning his first one-day cap for the Proteas in March 2008.

Ever since, the top-order regular has more than made up for lost time and in 2012 was the fastest player to reach 3,000 ODI runs.

In 2012 Amla had a standout series against the West Indies, where he scored 398 runs in five matches.

His performances in 2014 were no different, with Amla holding on to his position near the top of the ICC rankings. The unassuming South Africa vice-captain scored consecutive centuries against Sri Lanka in July and carried the form into August’s tri-series against Australia and Zimbabwe, where his top score of 122-not-out came against Zimbabwe on August 17. He followed up with a century in Canberra during the November ODI series.

Amla’s career-high one-day score of 159 came in the 2015 ICC World Cup against Ireland.

Alma was appointed one-day vice-captain in 2011, before giving up the job in 2013. The 31-year-old returned to the position in June 2014, when he was also named the Proteas’ Test skipper.

Amla has been a consistently high performer for the Proteas and average nearly 49 in Test cricket and more than 50 in ODI's.
