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.

Following the suspension of South Africa captain Faf du Plessis and a thigh bruise injury to opening batsman Aiden Markram, two spots could be available in the top-order batting line-up.

"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.

South Africa will take on Pakistan in the third and final Test at the Wanderers Stadium on January 11. After taking an unassailable 2-0 lead, the team would aim to go for the clean sweep. (ANI)
