Well, there are many sections if we divide the love of fans to certain cricketers. One of those sections is immense love. Fans love their idols wholeheartedly and would love to express to them by going any extent. However, one of those hardcore Hashim Amla fans, who remembered Jofra Archer’s bouncer to Amla, quoted that it was Archer, who played a part in Amla calling curtains on his career.
It was during the world cup game when South Africa locked horns with England. During the match, Jofra Archer bowled a stunning bouncer, which left Hashim Amla in pain. Eventually, he missed a couple of games as well. A fan felt that would be the reason behind Amla’s retirement.
I will never forgive you, Jofra Archer – Twitter User
Regarding the same, he took to Twitter and quoted saying that he would never ever forgive Jofra Archer. Meanwhile, the surprised Jofra Archer asked the fan about his mistake in Amla taking the retirement.
The Twitter user wrote “Amla (heartbreak emojis), @JofraArcher I will never forgive you” In reply, Jofra Archer quoted ” What Did I Do?”
What did I do ?

In an international career spread over 15 years, Amla played 349 matches across all three formats, scoring more than 18,000 runs, including 55 centuries and 88 other scores in excess of 50.
His ODI career was equally successful as he was ranked among the best batsmen in this format for an extended period of time for much of that period having an average in excess of 50 and a strike rate of 100.
When it came to franchised leagues, he represented Kings XI Punjab in the Indian Premier League, Barbados Tridents in the Caribbean Premier League and Durham Heat in the Mzansi Super League. He was named SA Cricketer of the Year in 2010 and again in 2013.
This became another big jolt for the South African cricket team following their World Cup blip and ahead of their campaign in ICC Test Championship. Earlier, speedster Dale Steyn had called it quits from Test cricket in order to shift his focus on white-ball format.
