South African batsman Hashim Amla in Saudi Arabia to perform Hajj

South African batsman Hashim Amla is in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia to perform the Islamic ritual pilgrimage of Hajj.

And who better to break the news on the internet, than former Pakistani spin wizard Saqlain Mushtaq. Saqlain tweeted a picture of the devout South African cricketer, standing where it appears to be at an airport, with two other fellows.

Hashim Amla has been known for his closeness to Islam, since he had refused to wear cricket gear that sported logos of alcoholic brands. A quiet, humble person by nature, Amla is one of South Africa’s most dependable batsmen currently.

Recently, a crane collapsed in Makkah due to rainfall and stormy weather. The tragic incident caused 107 casualties and numerous injuries to the devout.
