Temba Bavuma out
Bavuma became first Test captain to play less than three balls on captaincy debut

South Africa’s white-ball skipper Temba Bavuma, who recently became the full-time Test captain replacing Dean Elgar, scripted an embarrassing feat in the ongoing Test match against West Indies after he got out on duck in both innings of the game.

Bavuma, who made his Test captaincy debut in this match, got out on a golden duck in the first innings and registered a two-ball duck in the 2nd innings to produce the worst captaincy debut in Test cricket’s history.

Bavuma became the 25th captain to get out on a duck in both innings of a Test match and joined the list of Mark Taylor, Rashid Latif, and Habibul Bashar to be the 4th skipper to get dismissed on a pair on their captaincy debut.

The list of embarrassment does not end for Bavuma, who is often accused of favouritism in the team, as the 32-year-old became the first captain in Test history to play less than four balls in a match on their captaincy debut. Temba played a solitary ball in the first innings and two in the 2nd innings to have this record to his name.

Bavuma has played 55 Test matches and has 2797 runs at an average of 33.69. Besides a century, Temba has registered nine ducks in his red-ball career.
