South Africans reacted with delight when Proteas batsman Temba Bavuma recorded his century at Newlands, becoming the first black South African to do so in a Test.
It wasn't only the Saffers who cared though, as the man from Langa scored his century off 141 balls in just his seventh Test. Derided as a 'quota player' by many, it was a welcome score in anyone's eyes.
Well done SA! Bavuma what a MAN!!! #SAvENG
