South Africa vs England 2015-16: Hashim Amla Vows To Return To Form Just Like Alastair Cook Did

Hashim Amla, who of late suffered his first series loss as Test captain in India, firmly believes that even his England opposite number Alastair Cook had `ups and downs` in his career before revival as the two sides prepare for the upcoming four-match series.

Despite the Ashes series 0-5 whitewash against Australia, both Cook and the England selectors remained firm and managed to gain back the lost respect after regaining the Ashes earlier this year.

Amla, who also suffered his first series loss as the captain in India, said that one could not win every Test series, but admitted that these difficult conditions were a part of character building, Sport24reported. 

The 32-year-old described Cook as one of the best opening batsmen in the world, and insisted opening the batting in England was not an easy task, Sport24 reported. Speaking about the South African conditions, Amla stressed that England consist of a really good bowling unit and that they would be going to benefit due to the seamer-friendly conditions in the country.

South Africa will take on England in the four-match Test series, starting from December 26 in Durban. Amla scored 118 runs in the Test series against India at an average of close to 17, with a highest score of 43. Amla, who was the star for South Africa when South Africa previously visited India, failed in all counts in the recently concluded series. Amla was the third highest run-scorer for behind AB de Villiers and Dean Elgar. Amla will hope that he comes good in the home series against England.
