'Ton-maker' Amla may miss second Test against Pak because of imminent birth of child

Islamabad, Oct 15 : Veteran South African player Hashim Amla, whose unbeaten century steadied his side against Pakistan's spin attack on the opening day of the first Test in Abu Dhabi, may reportedly miss the second Test because of the imminent arrival of his second child

The unbeaten ton made Amla the fastest player in his country to reach 20 Test centuries.

According to the Daily Times, South African team manager Mohammad Moosajee said that Amla would return home after the conclusion of the first Test on Friday for the birth, adding that although he would attempt to return to Dubai for the second Test, which starts on Oct. 23, but his presence was not guaranteed.

Amla scored 118 not out, almost half of South Africa's total of 245 for eight, on Monday, the report added.
