Bavuma to miss white-ball matches Temba Bavuma

World Cup captain Temba Bavuma will miss two white-ball series against India, Cricket South Africa announced yesterday in naming squads for the multi-format tour.

Bavuma as well as fast bowler Kagiso Rabada will play no part in the limited overs series in order to prepare for two World Test Championship matches, starting in Centurion on December 26. 

Fast bowlers Gerald Coetzee, Lungi Ngidi and Marco Jansen will only play in the first two T20 internationals before returning to their franchises to play in domestic four-day cricket ahead of the Test series. One-day coach Rob Walter said the decision was made in consultation with test coach Shukri Conrad. 

“We have a busy summer ahead starting with the T20Is and then ODIs against India and we have therefore taken the decision to omit several of our senior players,” said Walter — SuperSport.
