In 5 T20I innings in 2022 including the series opener in Thiruvananthapuram, Temba Bavuma has scored a measly 61 runs at an average of 15.25. In the series opener, the South African skipper failed to open his account as Deepak Chahar cleaned him up. Having lost the first T20I by eight wickets, South Africa are now 2-0 down in the three-match series against Rohit Sharma's men, who clinched the Guwahati game by 16 runs despite David Miller's sublime century. Having failed to get their team off to a good start in the series so far, the South African openers have their task cut out when they take the field for the 3rd T20I in Indore.
