South Africa skipper Temba Bavuma was back amongst the headlines. However, this time, it was for the entertainment of his fans and his teammates. A new video has popped up on social media where he can be seen doing the duties of a DJ.
Temba Bavuma was the DJ in the video and can be seen playing popular songs for his teammates. His team, Sunrisers Eastern Cape won the SA20 2024 title yesterday night and all the team members and support staff were in a celebratory mood. The batter stole the show with his amazing skills and kept everyone alive in the short video.
Even though Bavuma can be seen in high spirits in this clip, it doesn’t entirely dictate the story of his SA20 2024 campaign. He was only able to play a solitary game throughout the tournament. He played the dead-rubber contest against Paarl Royals on 4th February 2024 at St George’s Park, Gqeberha.
In that game, the Sunrisers Eastern Cape were chasing down an average total of 160 on a sluggish surface. Bavuma came to bat at number three during this game and played a tidy knock. He was able to score 33 off 30 balls which in the end proved to be crucial for his side. The defending champions went out to win the game by 5 wickets on the penultimate delivery of the match.
