The Cape Cobras star Zubayr Hamza has been a regular run-maker in domestic cricket. Recently, the cricketer played a parallel game to South Africa’s bearded veteran.
Even though Hamza does not want to get forward of himself, the probability of making his debut in the recent South Africa batting unit is surreal. He has been a reserve batsman in the Test squad. However, Faf du Plessis’ suspension opened up a break for him to be South Africa’s 100th cap since readmission. Hamza said:
“As a batting unit, It’s something you only dream of, batting with these guys, playing in the same side and representing your country. I haven’t received confirmation if I am playing or not.
If given the chance that would be great, I have really enjoyed my time so far, the training has been intense and everyone has been welcoming. I have felt comfortable within the team surrounding. If given the chance, I am looking forward to it. There is a lot of excitement at the moment.”
Previously, Hamza had three fifties for Cape Cobras, but he has yet to score a first-class century this season. He has appreciated an otherwise successful run at franchise level over the last two years, be an average of a shade over 49 with nine centuries, as well as an unbeaten double. Although he is missing in match time after the Mzansi Super League and a round of CSA four-day matches, he is self-confident about his training and form.
