Amla is ranked No 3 in the world in both Test and ODI cricket and Derbyshire coach Graeme Welch said they are delighted to have him on board. ??
???It???s a different league, he???s one of the best three batsman in the world,??? Welch told the club???s website.
“We???re very privileged to have him here and hopefully he will win us a couple of games just like Martin Guptill did at Gloucestershire.
???He has already said he wants the lads to come and speak to him, to tap into his knowledge. He???s a really genuine nice man and I???m sure he will be brilliant for us.???
