South Africa’s legendary batsman Hashim Amla has been roped in by the Mzansi Super League (MSL) franchise Cape Town Blitz as a batting consultant for this year’s edition. Amla will link up with the team in the latter half of the tournament as he will be engaged in the Abu Dhabi T10 League before that time.
“Hashim has a wealth of experience and knowledge of the game and we’re really looking forward to him bringing that to our management team,” CT Blitz head coach Ashwell Prince said.
Although known for his batting expertise in Test cricket, Hashim also had tremendous amount of success in white-ball cricket. He is the fastest to 2000, 3000, 4000, 5000, 6000 and 7000 ODI runs. The classy right-handed batsman recently signed a Kolpak deal with Surrey.
