Top 10 Young Non-Asian Batting Talents


6. Temba Bavuma

Temba Bavuma

In 2014, Temba Bavuma hogged the headlines when he became the first black African batsman to play Test cricket for South Africa. Known for his sound technique and temperament and back-foot game, Bavuma didn’t have the best of starts. His first century came in his seventh Test at Cape Town. Temba has been inconsistent but there is a spark in Bavuma’s game and visible improvement with each game that makes him a player to watch out for. The right-hander made some meaningful contributions in South Africa’s wins at Perth and Hobart. If Bavuma gets consistency in his game, he can turn out to be some player in whites. In the lone ODI that Bavuma has played, he scored 113 runs.
