ODI World Cup 2023

Temba Bavuma, the captain of South Africa, responded angrily to those who had criticised him for his leadership and subpar batting performance during the just finished ODI World Cup 2023.

Before the Proteas suffered a painful loss to eventual winners Australia in the semi-final, Bavuma guided the team to a second-place finish after the league cycles. Even though the team put up a heroic fight to hold down a pitiful 212, Bavuma’s captaincy came under scrutiny both before and after the match.

Bavuma, as cited by The Daily Maverick, defended his position on the team. He said, “I have said it from the beginning that if any of the guys stood there and said, ‘Temba, you are not the man for the job as captain,’ then I would happily walk away. These are the bunch of guys who we have been together since 2020. We know each other through and through, and we know what we play for. I am not the guy who is on Twitter or Facebook.”

He raised more concerns about the standard by which a captain is evaluated by pointing up the team’s outstanding performance at the 2023 World Cup. He added, “I don’t know what the metric is to judge someone if they’re captaining well. We won the most games in the group stage out of any South African team. We beat teams that haven’t been beaten in a while in World Cups so what metrics are we going to use to judge whether a guy is using the job as the captain?.”

“I am not someone who is going to answer to calls” : Temba Bavuma

Temba Bavuma defended his decision to play during the 2023 World Cup semifinal even though he acknowledged that he wasn’t fully fit for the toss. Regretfully, as he was out for an unfortunate duck in the opening over of the match, the harsh assessment of his approach to the game intensified. Due to a stomach ailment, Bavuma was unable to play in both of South Africa’s matches against Bangladesh and England.

The South African skipper said, “For me to step down in a World Cup semifinal, that thought is strange. I am not someone who is going to walk away from adversity, I am not someone who is going to answer to calls from people shouting on Twitter or Facebook. Decisions I make will always be for the betterment of the team.”
