Cricket: Bavuma’s chances of playing in the semifinal have improved

# Cricket: Proteas captain Temba Bavuma’s chances of playing in Thursday’s World Cup semifinal against Australia seem to have improved after taking part in a training session in Kolkata today. He sustained a hamstring injury in last week’s final group match against Afghanistan. E-S-P-N-cricinfo reports Bavuma’s fitness will be monitored closely until Thursday, but the medical team is positive he will be able to lead the Proteas. Hosts India and New Zealand will fight it out in the first semifinal on Wednesday, with the final taking place on Sunday.
