Hashim Amla announces retirement from all forms of cricket

Legendary South African batter Hashim Amla has announced that he is retiring from all forms of cricket. Amla, who has been playing for Surrey post his international retirement, will not be returning to play for the county in 2023.

Amla, who had already played for Surrey in 2013 and 2014, signed a Kolpak deal in 2019 after retiring from international cricket post the ODI World Cup that year.

His final appearance in professional cricket was the game against Lancashire last year in the County Championship, a season in which he amassed over 700 runs at an average close to 40 as Surrey won the title.
