Temba Bavuma’s omission from the South Africa T20 team is very disappointing.
The Proteas white-ball captain spoke to the media online. And ahead of the India tour, he was clearly disappointing.
Undoubtedly, Bavuma got upset because he did not get a chance. And for any of the six franchises, but far more worrisome is the fact that yet another story about his race has been spreading on social media.
Hence Bavuma said that it is not the right time. Further, he said to the media he is very much focusing on this matter.
Temba Bavuma statement
“I’m cautioning myself to delve too deep into the matter. Whenever the right time comes, I’ll look more into it. I’d be lying if I said I didn’t have any feelings of disappointment,”
“Obviously one expected to play a role in the tournament. But it’s not just me, it’s Andile (Phehlukwayo) too, a man who’s played a lot of white-ball cricket for South Africa.
“From my side, there are feelings of disappointment.”
“I almost feel let down in a way. And I don’t think it comes down to any entitlement on my side,”
” AS I also have to caution myself from delving too deep into it. It’s probably not the right time. As much as I want to perhaps speak about the issue too, it’s not the right time. Our focus is India and the T20 World Cup.”
“To be honest, I haven’t been following the media and reaction as I generally do anyway. It’s comforting to know there’s a section of the cricketing community who share my sentiments,”
“You want to be selected on whatever merit and credentials. I know what I’m feeling but I don’t know what’s happening outside.”
Bavuma is returning to the team, but he played his last game against India way back in June. He is fit and will come back from his injury.
