Temba Bavuma, an emerging talent, entered the realm of first-class cricket at a tender age of 18, representing Gauteng. Three years down the road, he earned the coveted cap for South Africa A. The diminutive yet determined batsman showcased his mettle for South Africa A during two consecutive seasons, catching the selectors’ attention. His noteworthy performances secured him a spot in the Test squad set to tour West Indies in 2014. It was during that series that he made his Test debut, although he struggled to find his footing initially. Bavuma’s defining moment in Test cricket arrived in 2016 when he notched his maiden century, an unbeaten 102, against England, marking a significant milestone in his career.
