Another half century with his team under the pump. He might not make hundreds but the runs he makes are usually when they matter most

Bavuma batting well, this is usually when he shines when SA are under the pump.

Rickelton needs to make a score with him, given another chance to earn his spot.

I can't help talking like Mark Nicholas when he is commentating, delightful stroke.

Maybe, just maybe Temba Bavuma will score his 2nd test century, 7 years after his first.

I hope Temba can actually make it to that elusive second century.

Seedsfan will be doing cartwheels over SA’s best performed batsman over the last few years digging them out of trouble at 3-30 and 5-100

Some great banter there in the box between Pommie and Bish with the boxing gloves.

I wish I was a cricket commentator, such a cruisey gig, just talk cricket and talk sh*t with your mates.

Hundred for Bavuma. Very good knock as South Africa collapsed just like they did in the last game. This knock pretty much ensures they'll win 2-0.

Especially nice for Bavuma to shake off form concerns given South Africa don't play Test Cricket again for a long time.

And judging by people like Matthew Hayden, Pommie and Glenn McGrath you don't have to be much good to do it.

Great to see Bavuma shutting up his knockers with a ton.

Class batsman, he's better than his test record suggests.

He's the SA Tendulkar that plays on more bowler friendly wickets.

You just need to be an ex test cricketer to get a commentary gig these days, the ABC gave Bryce McGain a commentary gig off the back of one test.

Mulder was looking promising with the bat but threw his hand away with an ill-conceived shot whereby he rolled his wrists rather than going for elevation and clearing the boundary easily.

bavuma needs at least another 70 runs if he wants top bannerman innings %

Gee he finally stood up with the bat

Seems to me a guy with an average of 45 in a top order utterly bereft of runs for 4 years whos runs almost always come under the pump stands up quite frequently. To do it without outlier scores to beef up the average suggests he actually stands up more than most

Bavuma not adding much to his overnight total, the Windies should be able to wrap up this innings quickly now but the lead may already be too big.

SA all out with a lead of 390, I can't see the Windies chasing that lead down when they only made 251 in the first innings when the pitch was better.
