Briefly News previously reported that the Springboks were about to be facing their bitter rivals New Zealand and the timeline was been tense in preparation for the game.

Proteas captain Temba Bavuma, however, decided to post a "timeline cleanser" showing Siya Kolisi's terrible batting skills. Bavuma and Kolisi looked like they were having fun playing some cricket but it was clear that the sport is not Kolisi's strong point.

The Proteas captain captioned the post:

“Leader, forget those batting tips from Lungi Ngidi, sukum’mamela (don’t listen to him). All the best for the clash against New Zealand."
