It's encouraging to have Temba Bavuma back in the running: Faf du Plessis

The Sunrisers Eastern Cape purchased Temba Bavuma for the remainder of the season after he went unsold throughout the SA20 auctions.

The Sunrisers Eastern Cape purchased Temba Bavuma, who remained unsold during the SA20 auctions, for the rest of the season.

The captain of the Johannesburg Super Kings, Faf du Plessis, has scored the most runs thus far in the SA20’s debut season. In nine innings, he has allowed 369* runs at an average of 46.12 and a strikeout rate of around 150. He was a key contributor to the team’s victory in the competition.

The current South Africa captain Temba Bavuma, who was just signed by Sunrisers Eastern Cape, received some kind comments from the previous South African captain Du Plessis. He stated: “It’s critical to score runs since Temba is currently in some form. It had been challenging for him to find form earlier when there had been some pressure.”

Du Plessis then discussed Bavuma’s impressive form. He stated: “The problem is that at that point you believe the game is moving more quickly than it actually is. But you’re running out of time, and with each dot ball, the pressure mounts. But it’s encouraging to see how he’s bounced back. In the most recent ODI series, he performed admirably, but what stood out was the way he scored; he was more aggressive, which is something you can tell he worked on.”

Bavuma has managed to make a half-century and been removed for a golden duck in the two SA20 innings he has played so far. He may get a few more opportunities given that the Sunrisers Eastern Cape are vying to advance to the semifinals of the inaugural SA20 tournament. The third-placed franchise will qualify depending on how other teams perform. While Faf Du Plessis and the Johannesburg Super Kings are in second place with a game remaining and appear to be in good shape to advance to the semifinals.
