Birmingham: South Africa opener Hashim Amla on Wednesday became the second-fastest batsman to register 8000 One-Day International (ODI) runs.

The 36-year-old added the new feather to his already illustrious cap during the World Cup match against the New Zealand at Edgbaston.

 

In the 12th over, Amla, on 23, ran double and reached the milestone in his 176th innings in the format.

The right-hander now sits behind India captain Virat Kohli, who achieved the feat in his 175th innings.

The top five include South Africa's AB de Villiers (182), Sourav Ganguly (200) and Rohit Sharma (200).

Cricket South Africa (CSA) took Twitter to laud their "very own" Amla, saying, "The Proteas very own @amlahash is in amongst some distinguished names in the game."

Amla went onto smash his fifty before Mitchell Santner bowled him for 55. The South African's innings saw four boundaries.
