Temba Bavuma and Dean Elgar

Bavuma will captain the team to the 2021 and 2022 World Twenty20s, as well as the 50-over World Cup in 2023 while Elgar has been handed the reins for the next cycle of the ICC Test Championship that will run up until mid-2023

Opening batsman Dean Elgar will captain South Africa in Tests and Temba Bavuma in white-ball cricket after a shake-up of the leadership positions within the team, officials confirmed Thursday.

Wicket-keeper Quinton de Kock had led South Africa across all three formats recently, and although he was expected to hand over the Test captaincy, his replacement by Bavuma in the limited overs formats is a surprise.

Bavuma will captain the team to the 2021 and 2022 World Twenty20s, as well as the 50-over World Cup in 2023. 

Elgar has been handed the reins for the next cycle of the ICC Test Championship that will run up until mid-2023.
