Injury rules Temba Bavuma out of the England tour
South Africa’s white ball skipper Temba Bavuma will miss the upcoming tour of England due to an elbow injury.

David Miller and Keshav Maharaj will lead the side in Bavuma’s absence in T20Is and ODIs respectively.
CSA selectors have offered a maiden a T20I call up to 21 year old Gerald Coetzee while stylish top order batter Rilee Rossouw returns to the squad for the first time since the 2016 T20 World Series.
Meanwhile, pace spearhead Kagiso Rabido has been rested from the ODI squad with a view to manage his workload.
"The T20 format is a high priority for us at the moment because of the T20 World Series coming up in a few short months in Australia," CSA Convenor of Selectors, Victor Mpitsang said. "We are looking to give opportunities to players that we are interested in seeing and working out the best combinations, while also trying to balance our desire to maintain enough consistency within the set up that the players are used to playing together as a team by the time they reach Australia for the World Series. This series will go a long way in helping us achieve all of those objectives.
"While the ODI series is not for Super League points, the 50-over format is of vital importance as we look ahead to the 2023 ICC World Series in India. The combinations tried and the performances we yielded will go a long way in our build up to that tournament."
SA’s two months tour of UK will commence with a three match Test series, the squad for which will see the return of first team regulars including Rabada, Jansen, Makram and others who missed the last assignment against Bangladesh due to a scheduling conflict with Ind T20 League 2022.
