South African captain, Temba Bavuma is all set to play the T20 World Cup after breaking his thumb during the match against Sri Lanka in Colombo. The captain hasn’t played since he was injured on 2nd September.

In a virtual interview from Abu Dhabi on Thursday, he told that Friday would be “my first time having a live net facing bowlers”, and said he would miss his team’s T20 World Cup warm-up matches against Afghanistan on Monday and Pakistan on Wednesday.

Temba Bavuma said, “Everything is on track,”

“I had a good batting session today. My hand is definitely improving by the day. It’s getting stronger and I’m getting a lot more comfortable with it.”

“It will give me a better indication of how far I’ve progressed. What I’m trying to get out of it is comfort; to see what I can do and make peace with what I can’t do.”
