3rd Test: One of the toughest wickets I've batted on, says Hashim Amla
He batted one minute short of four hours for 61 runs, but at no point in his stay at the crease did Hashim Amla, one of the most accomplished batsmen in current cricket
He batted one minute short of four hours for 61 runs, but at no point in his stay at the crease did Hashim Amla, one of the most accomplished batsmen in current cricket, feel he had the measure of the conditions. "Yeah, probably one of the toughest pitches," said Amla. "I can think back recently in England we played and there were a couple of tough wickets there as well. But this one has a lot of pace, bounce. Probably one of the paciest wickets that I have played on."
Amla admitted that it was a relief to have a buffer coming into this game. "Yeah, I always say that it's a bowlers' game you know. But the wickets have been pretty tough to bat on. It's nice that we are coming on this type of wicket 2-0 up," said Amla. "So it does help in that respect, but there's nothing you can do about it. Try your best and get as many runs as possible when you are batting."
