Hashim Amla, who was earlier reported to be having the captaincy of South Africa for the test format, has been formally nominated for the captaincy on Tuesday.
The team wear a outfit carrying logo of a beer company, except, Hashim Amla, who has made it clear that he would not wear alcoholic brand logo shirt.
Islam forbids all type of alcohol including beer, vine and others; given the Islamic injunctions, Amla is determined not to wear the logo.
As he was nominated as the captain, the question South African cricket officials had to face was: whether Hashim Amla would wear outfit with alcoholic brand log?
But officials made it clear that Amla would not wear the logo given the respect to his faith.
