As South Africa cricketer Zubayr Hamza is all set to make his debut in the longest format against Pakistan in the third and final Test, the top-order batsman could also earn Proteas' 100th Test cap in the process.
"I haven't received confirmation if I am playing or not. If given the chance that would be great, I have really enjoyed my time so far, the training has been intense and everyone has been welcoming. I have felt comfortable in the team surrounding if given the chance I am looking forward to it. There is a lot of excitement at the moment." ICC quoted Hamza, as saying on Thursday.
In the midst of excitement on his expected debut, Hamza said, "I have tucked under a few guys' wings so far, I have been leeching as much information as I can about what it takes to perform at this level, but I have also combined that with my own mixture to try and perform as an individual."
Hamza has played in 52 first-class matches for Cape Cobras and has scored nine hundred with an average over 49.
