Amla could be last Proteas to play 100 Tests

Test captain Faf du Plessis has said that Hashim Amla could be the last South African player to play 100 Test matches.

"I am going to make a big call and say Hash (Amla) is probably going to be the last guy that plays 100 Tests for South Africa because of the way that the game is changing," du Plessis said. "Quinnie (de Kock) and KG (Rabada) are possibly looking at that as youngsters but it's a long way into the future."

"It's a massive call to make. Test cricket these days, the game has evolved so much. If you look at Hashim and AB (de Villiers) and Jacques (Kallis) and Graeme (Smith) and all those guys, it was a period of a lot of Test cricket that was played over a long period of time. Now, there's lots of T20s, so I think the game is changing a little bit, that you won't play for as long because there is so much more cricket," du Plessis said. "What I mean by that, is that its really special for Hash to do something like that. I'm not going to get to 100. The guys in the team that are playing now, JP, all those guys, its something we will never get to."
