Crowd chanting the name of Hashim Amla


Hashim Amla is a name that needs no introduction, especially if you are a Muslim cricket fan. Hailing from South Africa, Amla is one of the best batsman World Cricket, and even that might be an understatement. Alongside AB De Villiers, Hashim Amla is the second most important batsman in the South African batting lineup. The departure of the ever consistent and ever prolific Jacques Kallis left a massive void in the team, one which someone with the calibre of Amla could fulfil. The South Africans have a busy 2016 ahead of them, with several bilateral series and tours, and above all, their own domestic T20 leagues and the ICC World T20.

Besides his onfield talent, it is his off the field character that inspires many around the globe. Hashim Amla is a super personality and a super Muslim, and hence, it is no surprise that he is so loved and is such a fan favorite not just among the South African supporters, but all around the world.

South Africa are currently being humbled by a relentless England side at home. However, the South African supporters haven’t hidden their feelings about Hashim Amla, despite the drubbing their team is taking at the moment. Here’s a video of a moment from the second Test between South Africa and England, where the fans are chanting and singing the name of Hashim Amla.
