Rabada suspended after starring in win

Rabada suspended after starring in win

South Africa's Kagiso Rabada celebrates a wicket with his teammates in the second Test at Port Elizabeth.

His presence in the remainder of the series remains under threat, however, with match referee Jeff Crowe to announce the outcome of a hearing into a Level Two charge against the seamer after he brushed against Steve Smith after dismissing the Australian captain in the first innings.

"It's bittersweet. I would've loved to have been playing the next game", said the 22-year-old. He had the opportunity to avoid the contact, and I could not see any evidence to support the argument that the contact was accidental."The charges against Rabada and Marsh were levelled by on-field umpires Chris Gaffaney and Kumar Dharmasena, third umpire Sundaram Ravi and fourth umpire Bongani Jele". "I had a lot of time to reset my thoughts and all of that, and think about where I'm going with my career and the kind of things I still want to achieve".

"I don't know what I'm thinking actually". I said to him last night I'm just really pleased to see that he is walking the talk.

"I won't change the way I express myself, I will just stay as far away from the batter", Rabada stressed.

The Proteas are seeking legal advice and have 48 hours to lodge a formal appeal.


But that doesn't matter to the International Cricket Council (ICC) and it's demerit system. Nathan Lyon found guilty of level-one offence of "conduct that is contrary to the spirit of the game", having dropped the ball near dismissed batsman AB de Villiers after completing a run out. Amla was caught behind off Pat Cummins for 27 and De Villiers fell to Lyon three balls later.

Rabada's absence is a massive setback for the Proteas ahead of next week's clash in Cape Town. "He's probably been one of the outstanding bowlers of the series so far with his pace and the way he strikes".

"I remember against India, I bowled the whole day, then Faf asked me to be nightwatchman".

Fast bowler Rabada, under threat of a suspension that could rule him out of the rest of the four-Test series, made a key breakthrough when he bowled David Warner for 13 during a hostile spell in which his fastest delivery was timed at 151km/h.

The only South African with more 10-wicket test hauls is 86-test veteran Dale Steyn, while the only Australians with more 10-wicket test hauls are Clarrie Grimmett (seven), Dennis Lillee (seven) and Shane Warne (10). If I knew I did it deliberately, I wouldn't have gone to contest. Warner was docked 75 per cent of his match fee, while Rabada was fined half of his match payment.

Tall, handsome and with an action so athletic and aesthetic, it is as if Kagiso Rabada was engineered in a government laboratory whose sole goal is to create the ideal fast bowler. Tim Paine (28 not out) fought hard but ran out of partners.
