Injured Bavuma ruled out of Cape Town Test


Temba Bavuma has been ruled out of the Cape Town Test against India, due to the hamstring strain he suffered on the first day of the Boxing Day Test. Dean Elgar, coming off a match-winning ton in Centurion, will serve as the captain.

“Temba is not a great physical state. He was ready to bat at every turn. We kept monitoring it. You put something out there, I don’t know if the opposition will pick up on it,” Shukri Conrad, South Africa’s coach, said.

“Certain things are tactical. We felt the potential risk… there is a potential risk he could aggravate. He will have it assessed in two weeks time. He is definitely out for Cape Town. Zubayr Hamza will join the squad.”
