Roc Nation Sports has announced the signing of South Africa’s limited-overs cricket captain, Temba Bavuma.

“I am at an important phase of my career and I feel it is crucial to have the right people and support for me to achieve my objectives on and off the field,” said Bavuma. “Roc Nation Sports are passionate and committed towards giving their players the best opportunity and resources to achieve their goals. I look forward to this next chapter of my career with the team.“
