Johannesburg – In a media release on Monday, Proteas and Dolphins batsman Hashim Amla announced his move to the Cape Cobras.

“After a great deal of consideration and detailed discussion with my family and closest confidants, I have made the decision to move to the Nashua Mobile Cape Cobras with immediate effect.

"I must stress that this was a difficult decision for me. I have always considered myself a Durban boy and know that I will dearly miss the support of the KwaZulu-Natal fans during the domestic games. Although I may not have played a lot of domestic cricket in recent years due to my National team commitments, it is this tremendous support of the fans at KZN that I will remember and cherish the most.

"I have decided to pursue my domestic career with the Nashua Mobile Cape Cobras, and I am looking forward to joining a team that has as rich a tradition as the Sunfoil Dolphins. I’m extremely excited about the future and look forward to making many new friends and colleagues in the Western Cape, whilst enjoying the game of cricket.

"I would like to use this opportunity to personally wish the players of the Dolphins’ team everything of the best. Lastly, I would like to express my sincerest gratitude to Dolphins’ CEO Jesse Chellan for his support and assistance. It has been a great pleasure to work with him."
