Rabada found guilty, suspended for two Tests

Cricket Liz Ellis slams South African fans for sexist'shaming of Candice Warner with Sonny Bill Williams masks Kagiso Rabada rips through Australia again as South Africa level series
Frederick Owens | 13 March, 2018, 14:36

"This Test was for me just a huge indication of the pride and character in our team".

Rabada also accepted a charge of "using language, actions or gestures which could provoke an aggressive reaction from a batsman" and was fined a further 15 per cent of his fee for screaming in David Warner's face after bowling...

The first Test had been overshadowed by the Warner-Quinton de Kock saga but all the talk in the second Test has centered around Rabada.

Over the last nine months, this is the third time Rabada's send-offs have come into the spotlight.

Keshav Maharaj at St George's Park, in Port Elizabeth on Monday.

South Africa made a bit of a heavy work of reaching their modest target of 101, before captain Faf du Plessis (2) and Theunis de Bruyn (11) guided them to 102 for four.

Rabada contested the first charge, claiming the contact with Smith, who he brushed past as he celebrated the wicket, was unintentional.

The hearing was held after play on day three, and match referee Jeff Crowe handed down his verdict on Monday evening (AEDT). "I went out and even some of the Australians made some jokes. It's the same as with Lord's - I didn't try and appeal because I knew I did it".

Before his punishment was confirmed on Monday, Rabada himself appeared to concede that he was likely out of the rest of the series. Actually I don't know whether I will be playing or not.

Rabada is one of the most popular cricketers in South Africa, mainly for his major talent but also because he is a young black player in a sport focusing on bringing black players through to the national team to erase the legacy of apartheid. "To be honest, I just let it out", he added.

"It's a big series, there is a lot to play for. There's a whole lot of emotion and pride".

Do YOU want to write for GiveMeSport? It was a short flick of two players and you'd get one or two demerit points as a slap on the wrist because it wasn't full-body contact.

Lungi Ngidi and South African teammates celebrate the wicket of Nathan Lyon on day four of the second test. We absorbed brilliantly, Dean (Elgar) and Hashim (Amla), which set it up an AB masterclass, which is the flawless situation to come in when you have absorbed for a while, he can just come in and transfer that pressure.

Du Plessis had lavished praise on Rabada and AB de Villiers.

The performance of the 21-year-old in Port Elizabeth, where he wsa impressive with match-figures of 5-75, will have given the selectors second thoughts however. He has been sanctioned three times previously for over-the-top celebrations when taking a wicket. "These days, the attention has changed so much to what is allowed and what is not allowed, what is in the spirit of the game and what isn't".

Back in Wakanda‚ the masses would have been watching‚ too‚ and wondering - like Rabada - when they would see such magnificence again. "And I honestly think he will get better, so I'm really excited to see what happens in his future".
