- South Africa back captain Bavuma for T20 World Cup, says Rossouw
- Bavuma produced knocks of 0, 0 and 3 in the 3 T20Is against India
- Temba Bavuma has received flak for his performance
South Africa batter Rilee Rossouw has backed captain Temba Bavuma to find his mojo back ahead of the ICC T20 World Cup 2022, saying every batter goes through a dip in form.
Temba Bavuma, the captain of South Africa, has received flak for his performance in the India T20I Series. The right-handed batter has been wasting balls and struggling to get going in the T20I format. Bavuma’s position in the lineup has been called into doubt by several observers due to the fact that he cannot strike at 130.
“No, I don’t think it affects the team at all. Like we spoke about it today, if someone’s going to have a good day, they can carry that weight of someone that’s not in great form and it literally you saw it tonight,” Rilee Rossouw said in the post-match presser.
Bavuma produced knocks of 0, 0 and 3 in the 3 T20Is against India.
“It takes one knock and Temba (Bavuma) can be in the form of his life going to the World Cup. So it’s, it’s yes it’s something that we just need to be there as a team for him because every professional goes through this and it’s about backing him and we do…his ability, his captaincy we really really back him,” Rossouw added.
Meanwhile, Rilee Rossouw scored his maiden hundred as South Africa beat India by 49 runs in the third and final T20I on Tuesday. Rossouw scored 100 not out off 48 balls as SA piled up 227/3 before India folded up for 178 in response. India still took the three-match series 2-1.
