Cape Town - South African cricket fans have responded to an online poll asking whether Hashim Amla should be selected for the Proteas for this year's Cricket World Cup.

Over 2 400 Twitter users answered a simple question posed to them by Sport24: Should Hashim Amla be included in South Africa's 15-man squad for the 2019 Cricket World Cup?

After a matter of hours on Wednesday, the results showed just why this has been such a topical issue in the build-up to the tournament.

59% of the respondents believe that Amla should be included in the 15-man squad that will be named on Thursday at 13:00, while 41% believe he should stay at home. 

The 36-year-old, who has just come back from over a month away from the game as he attended to his critically ill father, has been struggling for consistency in all formats for over a year. 

He has played all five of the Cape Cobras' matches in the CSA T20 Challenge over the last two weeks, but his poor form continued against the Knights on Tuesday when he made just 4. 

It leaves him with 61 runs from his 5 innings' - at an average 12.2 - since returning.
