Riled-up Rabada ruptures halpless Australia

Share

Kagiso Rabada will miss the remainder of South Africa's four-match Test series against Australia after being found guilty of a Level 2 code of conduct breach.

But the fired-up quick has been given four demerit points and fined 65 per cent of his match fee from the game at St George's Park.

He represented South Africa at schoolboy level and at under-19, and won the under-19 World Cup in 2014.

Rabada's hearing over a level-two charge for making physical contact with Australia skipper Smith unfolded behind closed doors after play on day three of the second Test.

The President had instructed the IGP to relocate to the state until the carnage was contained. He said 60 percent of the IDPs were sadly children who ordinarily should have been in school.

"I just have a lot of sympathy. he's crossed the line a couple of times and I think he's regretting that". It is the joint-most 10-wicket haul by any bowler in Test history before the age of 23, along with Pakistan great Waqar Younis.

"Australia were never going to give in easily so you had to go to the reserve tank and give of your best", Rabada said after being named man-of-the-match.

An accumulation of eight points triggers a two-match ban. "I can't keep doing this because I'm letting the team down and I'm also letting myself down", he told reporters after starring in the six-wicket win.

The Proteas resumed at 7-263 on Sunday morning in Port Elizabeth, with de Villiers unbeaten on 74 and their lead just 20 runs.

Rabada, who kept his aggression under control on Monday - although it's likely too late for that - also dismissed Pat Cummins and Mitchell Starc as the Australians folded in less than 10 overs of the fourth day.

"From a South African point of view, it is interesting that Steve Smith before the series admitted that he was aware of Rabada's demerit point situation and how close he was to suspension", Manthorpe said. The counter-attacking tail-ender was given a taste of his own medicine - reverse swing - and edged behind cheaply as Rabada finished with 11 wickets in the match. Rabada has now been charged by the International Cricket Council five times in 13 months.

"If we're getting batters scoring big hundreds then it certainly helps a helluva lot and unfortunately we haven't been able to do that so far in this series but it is also a good opportunity to turn it around in the next two Test matches". Lungi Ngidi had Nathan Lyon caught behind and Keshav Maharaj had Josh Hazlewood caught at deep midwicket to leave Tim Paine unbeaten on 28 as Australia were dismissed for 239, having added only 59 to their overnight total for the loss of their last five wickets.

Meanwhile, South Africa lost four wickets before Theunis de Bruyn hit the winning runs. And, with the series moving to Cape Town on March 22, where there hasn't been significant rainfall for three years, it's hard to imagine the heavens intervening either.
