Aiden Markram has been handed the responsibility of leading the South African team in the absence of Temba Bavuma for the third ODI against Pakistan. Bavuma was ruled out of the game as a precautionary measure after he suffered a strain during the second ODI. However the second game of the series was called off due to heavy rain. West Indies are leading this series by 1-0 after winning the first game.
Markram has been a key player for South Africa in recent times and has been in good touch with the bat. He has also been impressive in the field and has taken some brilliant catches. His ability to lead from the front and inspire his team will be crucial for South Africa in the absence of Bavuma.
The third and the last ODI will be a must-win game for South Africa as they look to level the series against West Indies. Markram’s leadership skills and batting prowess will be vital in achieving this goal. His positive approach and aggressive mindset can inspire his team to play with confidence and take the fight to the opposition.
