South Africa star Hashim Amla announced his retirement from international cricket on Thursday, bringing a close to one of the greatest batsmen of the modern era.


He will continue to be available for domestic cricket as well as the Mzansi Super League (MSL).

Amla’s retirement is the second major blow to the Proteas this week, following Dale Steyn’s retirement from Test cricket.


The 36-year-old amassed 9,282 runs at an average of 46.64 in 124 Test matches and 8,113 at 49.46 in 181 ODIs.

He slammed 28 centuries in Tests and 27 in ODIs. His Test tally included four double centuries.
