The late Dean Elgar and Temba Bavuma had no enmity towards one another, according to Temba Bavuma, the South African Test captain. Bavuma replaced Elgar as the country’s Test captain recently as part of Cricket South Africa’s reorganisation (CSA).
He and Elgar reportedly do not get along due of his surprise appointment, according to rumours. The coaching staff has changed at CSA, with Rob Walter overseeing limited-overs teams and Shukri Conrad taking over as Test coach, while the Proteas are seeking a complete reorganisation of their system.
The first task for Bavuma in his new position as Test captain will be to lead his team in the two-match series against the West Indies, which starts on February 28. Bavuma discussed his friendship with Elgar and assertedhe has always been an inspiration to him as a senior player, and they have been excellent coworkers.
Bavuma was quoted by TimesLive as saying, “There is nothing wrong and there is nothing awry in my connection with Dean, so I think it’s a bit of a terrible question to ask about that.
As senior players, Dean and I have always became fantastic friends, and I have always admired him. He helped me fit in with the group, and given the leadership-related changes that have been made, I don’t see how things can change. According to our chats, there is nothing between Dean and myself that anyone should be afraid of or concerned about.

He continued by saying that he felt honoured to have had the opportunity to lead the club for the longest stretch of time.
After playing international cricket for a while, pressure is all I can think about. I don’t know what type of pressure there will be with becoming the Test captain. I guess I’ll just have to get used to that and carry it with me as I go since that is different in Test cricket,” he said.
The chance to lead the team is far more rare. The desire to play Test cricket was always the primary goal. I’ve experienced the dream. It makes many inferences.to myself, my family, and everyone who has ever supported and assisted me. It is distinctive, “He went on.
Conrad and the skipper chatted on the phone before Conrad took over as the Proteas’ Test captain. He wished for me to carry out his plans for the group. I had a few questions I wanted to ask him about why he chose me for the job, and I was pleased with what he said “Bavuma tacked on.
The 33-year-old also said that he had been considering resigning as T20 captain. I would consider things frequently Considering the club and everyone concerned, I was going to have to make that decision at some point, so it was only a matter of time. Yet, he claimed, I didn’t feel compelled to publicly announce my resignation as T20 captain.
