Former South African batsman Hashim Amla has been missing at the commentary during the second Test match against Sri Lanka at the Wanderers. 

The 37-year-old top order batsman lost his father last week. 

 

Amla was in the commentary box of the first Test match at Centurion, which the visiting team lost by an inning under four days. 

"He (Amla) has missed the entire Test", revealed Alvin Naicket, the Head of the Production SuperSport team. 

Speaking exclusively over the telephone from South Africa, he said, "Yes, Amla is away. We have made no replacement for him". 

"We have enough guys and a truly diverse team of commentators". 

The Test commentary is released in English and the African languages. 

 

"Our commentators are : Ramiz Raja (Pakistan), Pommie Mbangwa (he played for Zimbabwe but now lives in South Africa), JP Duminy, Vernon Philander, Shaun Pollock and Makhaya Ntini (all from SA)", the broadcaster chief added. 

Amla who announced his retirement in 2019 has played 124 Tests, 181 ODIs, and 44 T-20Is, scoring over 18000 runs in all three formats.
