So yesterday history was made when Temba Bavuma became the first black South African to score a century in a cricket test match. An epic moment that saw fans give the batsmen a standing ovation and receive praise from all the cricketing world. Early on in his innings though English bowler Ben Stokes, who scored 258 in the first innings, clearly didn’t think much of Bavuma’s batting talent. Just after Stokes nearly made Bavuma hit the ball onto his stumps, the bowler can been seen saying ‘you are absolutely sh*t’.

That was when Bavuma was on 12 runs.
Great comeback from Bavuma.
