Aiden Markram eventually stepped up with a stunning century in the first Test against the West Indies after suffering for a considerable period of time in the longest format of the game. The 28-year-old batsman struck 115 runs from 174 deliveries to put South Africa in the lead.
Markram said that he was really emotional following his century since it meant so much to him. Additionally, he claimed that the innings is more meaningful because it occurred on his own turf.
“I was fighting back some tears. It meant a great deal to me, and it’s been a bizarre road, but I’m thankful that everything worked out. When reaching milestones at SuperSport Park, where friends and family are also present, it is always a bit more memorable. There was also much relief. “That’s the bottom line,” Markram remarked, as cited by News24.
It’s excellent when a coach supports you in such a way: Aiden Markram
Following his century, the Proteas batsman hailed newly-appointed coach Shukri Conrad for giving him the confidence he so desperately needed.
“It’s amazing when a coach supports you in such a way; it boosts your confidence. You also wish to honour his support for you in this manner. This is one of the greatest qualities of Shukri. His messages are always very clear, and you’ll know exactly where you stand with the offered justifications. “I appreciate his support,” Markram remarked.
Significantly, South Africa scored 314 runs and lost eight wickets towards the end of play on Day 1. The middle order failed to capitalise on Markram and Dean Elgar’s excellent start, as captain Temba Bavuma, Keegan Petersen, and Heinrich Klassen all departed cheaply.
