Thumbs up *****Amla and Kohli Watch*****

Hashim Amla and Virat Kohli are two of my favorites to watch in the middle. I honestly don't care about what they do off the pitch. With consistently classy performances comparable to the all-time greats, neither looks rattled or likely to fail before scoring a magnificent 100 and beyond. Guys like these make me fall in love with cricket over and over again.

Hashim's on 183* at the Oval, his 14th test 100 in 103 test innings, as I post this, while Virat hit his 12th ODI 100 in 83 innings. Hashim (29) averages 47 and 56 in tests and ODIs respectively, and Virat (24) 33 and 51. Both are also excellent T20I batsmen set to captain their countries in the future in all 3 formats of the sport.

I hope this thread is around when they retire with staggering achievements and numbers.

Staggering numbers aren't always in staggering contexts! That being said, both these guys seem to score tons as if they're getting paid to!

I don't think Kohli is a flat track bully if that's what you're getting at. I saw his breakout test performance in Australia ball by ball and was deeply impressed by what I was watching. He's different and looks set to dominate on most surfaces. That being said, scoring an international 100 on any surface isn't a crime. I wish more of our guys hit more 100s at our flat track venues.

No not Kohli...he scores runs when it MATTERS...his knock against SL, PAK in Asia Cup, proves that. In the AUS tour he was the only one who fought, if I recall correctly.

Very good thread
These two were in my mind after yesterdays match.
They are the best run makinh softwares in the market.
Truly amazing
Although I am not a fan of Kohli(right after he insulted Rubel in WC11)but i truly admire his batting and fielding.
Amla is exactly the opposite of Kohli,very humble and calm fellow,like him a lot, although Kohli has more to prove in tests and t20s but Amla is too good in any format.

Hashim Amla scores a triple hundred while Fasting. Enough said.

He doesn't fast on Match Days. Firdose Moonda and the CI commentary team confirmed that on the live scorecard for the match.

Damn Amla! What a player, how can anyone not like such a player like him, seems like a humble man as well.

Talking Yeay!

I knew he'd do this and be in the elite company of batters he deserves to be in. He keeps himself amazingly fit and may play until he's 40 and beyond InshAllah. I expect more such epic scores from him throughout his career.

Hashim Amla became the first South Africa batsman to score a triple hundred as the visitors continued their remorseless progress at The Oval to take their lead to 252 before declaring during the tea interval. He and Jacques Kallis, who scored just his second Test hundred in England, took their third-wicket stand to an overwhelming 377, which was yet another record on a day full of landmarks.

Amla ticked off his individual achievements in a steady progression; first came the double, then the 250, then South Africa's highest individual score in Tests (overtaking AB de Villiers' 278 against Pakistan) then, from 515 deliveries, the rarefied atmosphere of 300.

There was a heart-in-mouth moment as he played the shot that took him to his triple as it burst through hands of a leaping cover fielder but was soon soaking in yet another standing ovation. He became just the second overseas batsman after Don Bradman (twice) and Bob Simpson to reach the mark in England.

His innings was a display of unyielding concentration and determination, yet he rarely lost his graceful touch until he became a little tense in the 290s. His driving continued to be the stand-out feature of the innings and even when England packed the off side he would calmly and carefully pierce the gaps with regularity.

It's hard to believe, in his 1st three years (2004-2006) of test cricket, he averaged a mere 22.4 in 17 innings. At the rate he keeps improving his game, I won't be too surprised if he ends up being the first modern day cricketer with a career avg of 60+ when it's all said and done.

Amazing innings. And as has been said above, he wasn't fasting but it is a sign of his truly humble character that he refused to drink in front of the cameras out of respect for those who are. Wish him all the best in his career. Can see him ending up as SA's second highest Test scorer ever after Kallis.

I agree Equinox. He may become the 2nd highest scorer even if he plays far fewer matches than Kallis!

Alma couldn't have easily gone past Lara's record. Obviously SA wasn't chasing personal records or else Kallis would've gotten his 2nd double.

Personality wise, they are on different poles. But I like their game ... So fluent when they get going. Think, Amla should enjoy his stardom a bit more, that doesn't stop him being humble... while Kohli should tone it down a little bit, great players need to be a bit humble... They are both relatively young and they will learn their lessons with time... Hope they keep playing like this....

The Funny thing about Amla was that, a Lot of people was doubting his ability in the beginning..

so moral of the story, It's not how you begin, It's where you end up! A lot of parallel can also be drawn to Bangladeshi players. Never give up hope, keep working hard at your game, Improve as much as you can...you are only helping yourself by doing that.

with that being said, Amla still has a lot more to prove, at least I hope he thinks so....

Hashim Amla is 'overwhelmed' by record-breaking knock for South Africa
Paul Weaver at The Oval
guardian.co.uk, Sunday 22 July 2012 22.08 BST

The biggest cheer from England supporters here yesterday arrived shortly after tea; Bradley Wiggins, it was announced, had won the Tour de France. The only other rousing shout marked Jimmy Anderson beating the outside edge of Hashim Amla's bat. The celebration was soaked in irony and was followed by sarcastic applause.

Only Don Bradman and Brian Lara have scored more runs against England in a single innings than Amla's unbeaten 311 here, making him the first South African to score a Test triple hundred.

Amla claims that he eats like a rabbit but, unfortunately from the perspective of England's bowlers, he does not bat like one. The only surprise is that this devout Muslim is eating at all, for it is Ramadan and in the past not even Test cricket has been allowed to interrupt the vigilance of his religious observance. Here, though, he has put fasting on hold.

"Because I'm travelling away from home I don't have to fast," he said. "So I haven't been fasting. But I will make it up when I get home."

It thrills me think about many more such innings to come InshAllah. He is pretty much unbreakable.

so kohli 4 centuries from 5 ODI innings and amla first triple century by a south african. these guys are gun batsmen, 2 of the best currently and definitely if they keep it up will be greats. both still have a good number of years left in them which is awesome.

Kohli is a beast.
