Bavuma, who is recovering from a broken thumb sustained in Sri Lanka last month, will have his first ‘live net’ on Friday.

“My hand is definitely improving by the day. It’s getting stronger and a lot more comfortable. Tomorrow will be the first time I am having a live net, facing bowlers,” Bavuma was quoted as saying by ESPNCricinfo.

“I am looking forward to that and that will give me a better indication of how far I’ve progressed. At the moment, everything is still on track. I am looking to play in the warm-up games. I am feeling good.”

Bavuma is hoping to open the batting along with Quinton de Kock in the T20 World Cup beginning on Sunday in Oman and the UAE.

“My role is quite obvious and clear. I am someone to come in at the top, and if there is an opportunity to come in at No. 3, I will fill in that spot,” said the 31-year-old batter.
