Kagiso Rabada delivers send-off to David Warner in the second Test

AB stars, South Africa claim 139-run lead

The fitness of experienced fast bowler Dale Steyn will be of even more interest to South Africa in the coming days after their most potent wicket-taker Kagiso Rabada was ruled out of the remainder of the four-test series with Australia.

South Africa levelled the four-match series against Australia at 1-1 with an important six-wicket victory in the second Test at Port Elizabeth on Monday.

Rabada contested the charge, but was found guilty, and slapped with a 50 percent match fee fine along with three demerit points.

It took Rabada's points accumulation to eight over a 24-month period, leading to an automatic and immediate suspension.

Before the verdict was announced, a remorseful Rabada said: "It's going to have to stop. 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.

Rabada said he had contested the charge for brushing Smith at a hearing because he did not touch him on goal.

"I found that there was contact between Rabada and Smith, and in my judgement the contact by Rabada was inappropriate, and deliberate", Crowe said in an ICC statement.

"I don't know what I am thinking actually".

The South Africans have 48 hours to appeal the decision and were seeking legal advice.




After South Africa's seniors were shown-up in the first Test, there were concerns. "I was just so pumped up".

He took his match tally to 11 by having Mitchell Starc caught behind, before the final two wickets fell to other bowlers. "I'm not happy about it, (but) time moves on".

Rabada ended the match with combined figures of 11 wickets for 150 runs, proving to be the clear difference between the sides.

"As I mentioned before the series, I could see in his eyes that he had a huge hunger and the stuff that we spoke about before this series as a team, he was extremely hungry to make a play".

De Villiers did not play Test cricket between January 2016 and December 2017, after he decided he needed time away from the game.

"I don't know what's going to happen to him after this Test, but if he's around for the next Test match he'll have learned from his mistakes, de Villiers added".

Team Australia and South Africa now in the Test schedule where the Test series are executed at South Africa. You don't want to roll over.

Siddle said it would be unfortunate for the series if Rabada was rubbed out, because the hard-fought nature was what made it so watchable.

"If you look at the way "KG" plays the game‚ he's a competitive fast bowler and he works bloody hard‚" Du Plessis said.
