Proteas star Temba Bavuma warmed up for his once-off Proteas ODI appearance against Ireland by smashing a century for the Lions in a 18-run win over the Titans yesterday.
Playing for the Lions in the eKasi Challenge derby in Soweto yesterday, Bavuma smashed seven fours and a six on his way to 117 off 118 balls.
Of his knock, Bavuma said: “It’s nice to be out in the middle – I’ve played a lot of Tests, so it’s nice to be facing the white ball. I enjoyed myself.
“Things went well for us.”
Despite only having played in Test matches for the national team, Bavuma was included in the Proteas ODI squad earlier in the week along with rookies Dwaine Pretorius and Andile Phehlukwayo.
