  • Al-Ahly coach Pitso Mosimane and Proteas One Day International captain and batsman Temba Bavuma had a feel-good "bro" moment on social media
  • Bavuma shared a picture on his Twitter account of him posing with a signed custom match jersey of the Egyptian giants courtesy of Mosimane
  • Naturally, Bavuma couldn't miss the opportunity as a Kaizer Chiefs fan to take a friendly dig at Mamelodi Sundowns, where Mosimane used to coach

Al-Ahly coach Pitso Mosimane and Proteas captain Temba Bavuma showed solidarity as leading South African sports figures in a feel-good gesture.

Bavuma was the recipient of a signed custom Al-Ahly match jersey courtesy of the team's mentor, with the famed number 10 on the back. The diminutive batsman then went on social media to thank the coach.

Bavuma, a Kaizer Chiefs fan, could not miss the opportunity to take a dig at rivals Mamelodi Sundowns where Mosimane used to coach, saying in a tweet:

“Thank you Bra Pitso for the gift. I’m so relieved as a Chiefs fan [and] it’s not a Sundowns shirt. PS: All the best for the FIFA Club World Cup 2022!”

Mosimane won a second consecutive African Champions League with the Egyptian club last year (ironically beating Chiefs in the final), gaining qualification to the FIFA Club World Cup, as reported on SkySports. He also added to his legend in February last year when Al-Ahly finished third in the same competition, it's best ever finish in the tournament as per BBC Sport.

Bavuma has been the toast of town in the cricketing world of late. He captained South Africa to an unexpected but mightily impressive 3-0 whitewash of world number one India in a One Day International series, News24 reported.

Proteas ODI captain Temba Bavuma, normally reserved on social media, has been something of a busy-bee on it lately.

The 31-year-old Bavuma was in defiant and history-making form in the recent series against a formidable Indian team, delivering important knocks in the team's hour of need.

He went on to his Instagram account to express relief at having the chance to take a breather from having red and white leather balls flying in his direction at frightening speeds.
