Proteas assistant coach Enoch Nkwe confident Bavuma will captain SA in the future

Proteas assistant coach Enoch Nkwe has called for patience when it comes to transformation of the national cricket team‚ adding that Temba Bavuma will lead South Africa in the future.

Speaking to media ahead of third Test against England starting here at St George’s Park in Port Elizabeth on Thursday‚ Nkwe said interim director of cricket Graeme Smith and head coach Mark Boucher were very aware of the need to transform cricket and that planning was afoot backstage.

Nkwe says he understands the frustration‚ adding that transformation is on the agenda of the interim Proteas management structure.

"He is in the process of making sure that from a mental‚ emotional and skills point of view that when he gets that opportunity to come back‚ whether it’s in the next Test match or it’s in a different format‚ that he takes ownership of his position and he delivers 10 times more than what he has done.

People might not see it but he really cares and he has processes and plans behind the scenes to ensure there are no further questions around that topic.”

"Having worked with him‚ he’s a strong leader‚ very smart and he’s able to lead a massive group of people to greater heights.”
