SA vs PAK T20 series: South Africa captain Temba Bavuma has been ruled out of the T20 series due to injury. The in form limited order captain had suffered a hamstring injury during the third ODI, which Pakistan won by 28 runs after another stellar Fakhar Zaman century.
He showed signs of discomfort at the start of the 22nd over, when he had faced 18 balls. He required on-field treatment and appeared to be offered the choice to retire, but chose to continue. He ran awkwardly and only faced another five deliveries before being bowled, leaving an inexperienced middle and lower order to attempt to pull off the highest successful chase in Centurion.
