Proteas captain Temba Bavuma tests Siya Kolisi
In other sports news, Briefly News reported that the Springboks were going to be facing their bitter rivals New Zealand and the timeline has 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."
Briefly News previously reported that Dale Steyn, a Proteas legend and one of the best fast bowlers in history, has announced his retirement from all forms of cricket. Steyn, who is now 38 years old, is the country's all-time best wicket-taker in test cricket with 439 wickets in 93 appearances.
Steyn is a huge Chelsea fan and his team recognised him for his efforts. Taking to social media, the club decided to wish Steyn a happy retirement. They captioned their post:
"Wishing Chelsea supporter and cricketing great @DaleSteyn62 the very best in his retirement!"
