Bavuma retains hope and perspective: The question was unfair. So Temba Bavuma had the right to smile wryly, look up and away from the screen, and rub his beard with his hand as he kept his thoughts to himself. But only after he responded. It was not the first time that Bavuma was wrongly questioned and it will not be the last.
And since he is the man of grace, he has always responded and will no doubt continue to respond. This time, in an online press conference on Sunday, he was essentially asked why South Africa‘s cricket teams no longer perform like his rugby teams.
On Australia‘s Gold Coast, the Springboks fell nine points behind on Saturday to inflict their first loss in 11 games on the All Blacks and with the final kick of a game in which the lead changed hands four times in the last five. minutes Beat 31-29.
The New Zealanders had secured the Rugby Championship – the sport`s southern hemisphere title – per week earlier after they beat South Africa 19-17.
But that is rugby’s blue riband fixture, effortlessly as predicted because the cricket global awaits the Ashes or showdowns among India and Pakistan. So the broader context of a useless rubber fades into irrelevance withinside the nonetheless wider context of a competition that towers over mere circumstance.
There is also a rugby corner here. The game between the Springboks and the All Blacks last weekend was the 100th between the teams and came 100 years after the first. The Bavuma team will include exactly 100 World Cup international matches, the Champions Trophy, and the T20 World Cup experience in the T20 World Cup.
It’s a feeling, a strong unifying continuity that no South African cricketer knows about. Bavuma and his men have a chance to change that. The Springboks will cheer you on like millions of their countrymen.
