Profile

Zubayr Hamza became South Africa's 100th Test player since readmission when he was picked for the third Test against Pakistan in January 2019. A middle order batsman who combines free-flowing batting ability with the willingness to knuckle down and grit out an innings, Hamza earned his call-up after a couple of consistent seasons for Cape Cobras took his First Class average to within touching distance of 50.
