He is already being touted as a name to watch and one of the stars set to glow for South African cricket in the future.

Asked how he is coping with the weight of expectation, he says he is taking it all in his stride.

As a sportsman, it comes with the game. Just to take it in your stride one day at a time. That is all you can do. That is pretty much how I cope with it.
