Bavuma was mentored by Geoffrey Toyana - a former South Africa first-class cricketer - and made his first class debut for Gauteng in 2008. Just after three seasons, he was signed up by the Lions. He had a good second season and his consistent performances, led to him being made the vice captain of the team in 2013-14.
Having been in the top run-getters list for consecutive seasons, Bavuma finally got a chance for the national team when he was named in the squad for the West Indies Test series towards the end of 2014. He didn't have the best of starts as he scored 10 and 15 in his debut Test. However, he impressed skipper Amla with a half-century when he got his next chance in the middle of 2015 in Bangladesh.
The home series against England in late 2015 - early 2016 proved to be a breakthrough one for Bavuma as he solidified his place in the team with a ton at Cape Town. However, following this series, there's always been some criticism of Bavuma that he doesn't quite kick on from a start. He sparkled with a couple of half-centuries later in the year in Australia without converting them into anything substantial, failed miserably against a visiting Sri Lanka, and then again showed some form in New Zealand with a couple more half-centuries.
In England, in mid-2017, the entire South Africa batting line-up struggled. Bavuma didn't really stand out either, but he did manage a respectable average of over 31 during the four Tests. While his career graph hasn't quite taken the desired upturn, there's plenty of promise there.
The career graph has remained a flat line as Bavuma has struggled to make the upward move. He still has a lone Test hundred and his average hovers around the early 30s. Even after the retirement of AB de Villiers and Amla, Bavuma has failed to take the next step but the management still believe him as he was named the vice captain of the Test side.
