Hashim Amla has scored 54 centuries for South Africa.[1]

Hashim Amla is a cricketer who represents the South Africa national cricket team.[2] He has scored centuries (100 or more runs in a single innings) in Test and One Day International (ODI) matches on 28 and 26 occasions respectively.[3][4]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 sixteen cricket grounds, including ten at venues outside South Africa.[12][13] In Tests, he has scored centuries against eight different opponents, and has the most centuries against England with six. As of October 2017, Amla has the second-highest number of centuries for South Africa in Tests.[n 1][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 of 159 was made against Ireland at the Manuka Oval, Canberra in 2015.[17] His 26 centuries in the format is a South African record. Amla has played 38 Twenty20 International (T20I) matches without scoring a century;[18] his highest score in the format is 97 not out.[2] As of October 2017, Amla has the joint fifth-highest number of centuries across all formats in international cricket.[19]
