WP Confirms Hashim Amla Will Not be Returning to Domestic Cricket

The Western Province Cricket Association (WPCA) has confirmed that former Proteas batsman Hashim Amla has made the decision not return to domestic cricket in South Africa.

 WPCA CEO Michael Canterbury, Amla’s decision is disappointing.

“It’s obviously hugely disappointing that Hashim will not be donning the Six Gun Grill WP colours this season, he would have been a huge asset to the team on and off the field, especially working with the group of talented young batsmen we have at our disposal.

Amla thanked WP for their understanding as he made this decision to not return to the South African domestic scene.

“I want to thank Western Province for their open communication throughout the entire contracting process. I have made this decision based on where I am currently in my career and with a view to my future endeavors. I want to wish the squad all the best for the coming season.”

WPCA  says a replacement in the squad of 16 contracted players will be announced in due course.
