Hashim Amla has scored 41 centuries for South Africa.[1]

Hashim Amla is a cricketer who represents the South Africa national cricket team and is the captain of the national Test side.[2] He has scored centuries (100 or more runs in a single innings) in Test and One Day International (ODI) matches on 23 and 18 occasions respectively.[3][4] As of 2015, he has played 82 Tests and 105 ODIs for South Africa, scoring 6,757 and 5,165 runs respectively.[2] Former England captain Geoffrey Boycott once said about him that "he bats in a way that gives very little hope for the bowlers" and "he plays the same way at the start of his innings as he does at the end of it".[5]

Amla made his Test debut against India at Eden Gardens, Kolkata, in 2004.[6][7] His first century came two years later against New Zealand at the Newlands Cricket Ground, Cape Town.[8] His score of 311 not out, against England at The Oval, London, in 2012, is the only triple century by a South African batsman in Test cricket.[9][10][11] Amla has scored Test centuries at fifteen cricket grounds, including ten at venues outside South Africa.[12][13] He has scored his twenty-three Test centuries against eight different opponents; he is most successful against Australia and India, making five each. As of 2015, Amla is third in the list of Test century-makers for South Africa.[14]

Amla made his ODI debut in 2008 against Bangladesh at the Chittagong Divisional Stadium, Chittagong.[15] His first century came in the same year against the same team at the Willowmoore Park, Benoni.[16] His highest ODI score is 153 not out against West Indies at the Wanderers, Johannesburg in 2015.[17] Amla is the fastest batsman to reach 2,000, 3,000, 4,000 and 5,000 runs in ODIs, taking 40, 57, 81 and 101 innings respectively to do so.[18][19][20][21] He has played 15 Twenty20 International (T20I) matches, without scoring a century,[22] his highest score being 47 not out.[2] As of 2015, Amla is joint ninth—with Shivnarine Chanderpaul—in the list of century-makers in international cricket, all formats of the game combined.[23]
