Kagiso Rabada will only get better, excited to see his future

Kagiso Rabada will only get better, excited to see his future

South African fast bowler Kagiso Rabada was on Monday banned for the two remaining Tests against Australia and admitted that he would have to change how he celebrates wickets. Skipper Faf du Plessis is impressed with his young pacer and said the PE win reflected the character of his team. But with bat, this time Australia could not get success but scored only 243 runs.

It still bewilders me how up to seven or eight overs of a scheduled 90-overs day in the Test arena can just "go missing" to the paying public, often without any significant punitive and correctional measure involved.

Rabada reclaimed top spot on the ICC's test bowling charts after claiming 11-150 in Port Elizabeth, a man-of-the-match effort that included a stack of key wickets at clutch moments.

Rabada received a further 15 percent deduction of his match fee and an additional demerit point.

For his part, Rabada said he would need to avoid getting into close proximity with opponents. The four-match series is now level at 1-1. De Kock contested his charge of a Level 1 offence but was fined 25% of his match fee.

"He's been probably one of the outstanding bowlers of the series so far and with his pace and the way he strikes, I think his strike rate's one of the better ones in the world". Did you see that? "We as a team have got no issues with the way the Australian team play their brand of cricket. Every single incident is on camera... it's Test cricket".

"People talk about where is the future of Test cricket". For me, the small battles are important. He picked up another demerit point for giving David Warner a send-off on day three. So that was my question that why both these incidents were labelled as exactly the same. Because for me they're not.

Faf du Plessis has questioned global cricket's disciplinary approach, stunned that David Warner's staircase rampage and Kagiso Rabada's rowdy send-off could both be worth three demerit points. At that stage it looked as though Morkel had played his final Test, having announced before this series that he would be retiring at its end. For us it's about proving that what KG did. they call it body contact, we would say it is a shirt being brushed or it was not deliberate.

Those are the odds on the 2-2 series draw, which is understandably the bookies' favourite after two matches of vastly fluctuating fortunes.

"Everyone just asks for consistency. but one match referee or one umpire interprets (something differently compared to another)". De Villiers' scores of 126* and 28 in the second Test have pushed him five places up and back into the top ten of the batsmen's rankings, where he has displaced Pakistan's Azhar Ali at No. 7.

"There are a lot of grey areas but rules are rules".

"I didn't feel any contact at all. I was just so pumped up". The two-test ban is on the table because of the 22-yearold quick bowler's previous disciplinary record. "But that's why I'm sitting as a player, not as an official".
