Hashim Amla expresses gratitude; thanks fans and cricketers worldwide for post-retirement wishes

Former South Africa star batsman, Hashim Amla on Sunday, August 11, thanked all his fans, supporters, teammates and cricketers worldwide for their wishes.

On August 8, the Proteas legend had called it quits from international cricket. The entire cricketing world took to social media to wish him a happy retirement.


In return, Amla took to Instagram to thank everyone –

“Thanks to everyone for the wishes, messages, and calls. Wow! It was truly an amazing journey with the Proteas, one that I was honored to be a part of. So many valuable lessons learned and countless memories made during an incredible #proteafire journey. It’s all the friends and teammates who have actually become family that I walk away richer for. Aww man..probably a book load of stories and memories. Until then I look forward to the next chapter of making more cricket memories on different grounds throughout the world,” Amla wrote in his post.

And then, he hinted at something really surprising through a pic of him bowling –

“Ps- regarding the last Pic…#underused #hiddenpotential,” he added.

The right-handed batting genius was quick to let his fans know via the image that he was good in the bowling department as well. But at the end of the day, he was not used much as a bowler.

He also thanked cricketing legends on Twitter for their wishes:

The 36-year-old was the only South African to smash a triple ton in Tests.

He aggregated 9,282 runs at an average of 46.64 in 124 Test matches and 8,113 at 49.46 in 181 ODIs.

He notched up 28 centuries in Tests (four double tons) and 27 hundred in ODIs.
