Kagiso Rabada rips through Australia again as South Africa level series

Share

Australia captain Steve Smith put the blame firmly on his batsmen after falling to a six-wicket defeat in the second Test against the Proteas in Port Elizabeth on Monday. Overall, however, Australia remain ever so slightly more likely to close out the win - they are 3/1 to claim a 2-1 series scoreline, and 11/4 for 3-1, compared to 5/1 and 8/1 for South Africa to secure the opposite result.

Rabada was given three demerit points, which took his total to eight points in two years, activating an automatic two-match suspension.

A contrite Rabada admitted he let his team down, saying, "it's going to have to stop".

"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".

"You could say that the contact (between Rabada and Smith) was very, very minimal. I can't keep doing this because I am letting the team down and I am letting myself down", Rabada said.

The ruling therefore activates a two-Test ban, meaning Rabada will play no part in the forthcoming Newlands and Wanderers showdowns.

Rabada attended a disciplinary hearing at St. George's Park on Sunday and now will wait for the match officials and the International Cricket Council to decide his fate.

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

Updated via @FieldYates and me: Browns trade Danny Shelton and a 5th round pick in "18 for the Patriots" 3rd l-round pick in "19". Making it a no-brainer for Barkley at number one. "Now, running back typically is not a position we see go very often".

"I didn't even feel contact in that moment because I was so pumped up. It's the same as with Lord's - I didn't try and appeal because I knew I did it". 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.

"Especially coming off a performance like that, I felt really good in this Test match". I have to see it as a big learning curve. I became a dad at the same time, all of a sudden two boys are around and I've got a family.

Australia started the fourth day on 180 for five with a lead of just 41 runs - and could only add 59 more runs amid a tail-end collapse. Rabada followed by having Pat Cummins caught for 5 when he steered a catch to Theunis de Bruyn at gully, and that confirmed Rabada's second five-wicket innings of the match and the fourth ten-for of his career.

Australia won the first test in Durban by 118 runs.

De Villiers reached his century soon after with an audacious shot over the slips as he was joined by Maharaj, who swatted at the Australian bowling to score 30 off 24 balls before he was bowled by Josh Hazlewood.
