It will be his first consultancy role post his international playing career. <p></p> <p></p>Amla, 36, who recently announced his retirement from international cricket, will be available for the MSL franchise from November 25, after his stint in the <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/tag/abu-dhabi-t10-league">Abu Dhabi T10 League</a> where he has been picked as Karnataka Tuskers's icon player and captain. <p></p> <p></p>"Hashim has a wealth of experience and knowledge of the game and we're really looking forward to him bringing that to our management team," coach Ashwell Prince said. <p></p> <p></p>"There are obviously a few very promising young batsmen in our squad, and I think they will benefit immensely from having him around. It's also an opportunity for him to explore whether a position such as batting consultant could be something that he might want to take up in future. I have no doubt that he'd do a great job at it if he did." <p></p> <p></p>Cape Town Blitz finished runners-up in the inaugural edition of MSL and will look to go one better. They take on Jozi Stars in the opening match of the Mzansi Super League on November 8 (Friday).
