Hashim Amla – The Dictator

So it must be said, massive congratulations to the Proteas for one of if not the most comprehensive victories over England in England everrrr.

A superb performance by all and sundry but extra special maverick respect to Graeme Smith, Jacques Kallis, Dale Steyn and Hashim Amla in particular. These senior players all played exceptionally well and none more so than that bearded maestro, Hashim.

Sheesh, this soon to be cricketing legend is incredible. He ended on 311 not out, the first South African to amass over 300 runs to put the Proteas in what turned out to be a unassailabe posish.

The Proteas are now 1-0 up in the three Test series and well on their way to over taking England to become the number 1 Test side in the world. Glorious.

Hashim, we salute you!
