South Africa’s latest limited-over skipper, Temba Bavuma has been ruled out of the remaining Pak vs SA series as the homies Proteas are due to take on the visitors Pakistan in a three-match T20I series by 10th April.
Bavuma sustained a hamstring strain during the deciding ODI match that took place at Centurion on 7th April. The skipper was active on the field helping out his team to chase 321 in the race of the series triumph.
Bavuma’s loss is a massive hit to the Proteas as the batter has proved his worth with the bat often in mid-orders. South Africa are already playing without their top five key players who have flown away for the Indian Premier League (IPL).
