Rabada takes 3 quick wickets to leave Australia reeling

Share

The aftermath of his first wicket, that of Australian captain Steve Smith, could come under scrutiny at the end of an emotion-charged week when an altercation between Australia's David Warner and South Africa's Quinton de Kock stole much of the attention from Australia's 118-run win in the first Test in Durban.

Bancroft fell on the brink of lunch for 38.

The charge typically carries with it three demerit points, which would take Rabada to eight in total in the past 12 month period - triggering a two-Test ban, which would rule him out of the rest of the series with Australia.

South Africa is in a strong position after bowling Australia out for a below-par score, when fast bowler Rabada took 5-96 before padding up and helping South Africa see out the last few overs of the first day with the bat.

NOR'EASTER 2Scenario 1:We're impacted! These storms could produce damaging winds and some hail, and we cannot rule out tornadoes. Now, the region is all abuzz about the potential of yet another nor'easter in the works for next week.

The Australian cricket writer Peter Lalor called the incident a "disgraceful new low" while South African cricket writer Telford Vice slammed fans for wearing the masks.

South Africa suffered a final-session collapse to finish on 7-263 on day two, meaning the hosts hold a lead of just 20. "I don't think anyone's read it, to be honest".

CSA president Chris Nenzani apologised to the board of Cricket Australia and its officials, team management, players and their families.

Warner, who hogged the headlines in the build-up to the game following an ugly confrontation with De Kock in the first test, was sublime as he overcame a slow start to reach a superb unbeaten 50 from 69 balls at the interval.

"You are allowed to celebrate sometimes", said Philander.

Having bravely elected to bat in overcast conditions on a pitch with a healthy grass cover at St George's Park, the tourists managed just 23 runs in the first 14 overs as the home bowlers found prodigious movement. As matters stand, they are 90 runs adrift of the Aussies.

Usman Khawaja followed quickly after lunch for four as his travails in Test cricket continued and then Warner was clean bowled as Ngidi was brought back into the attack. Smith and Shaun Marsh put on 44 before Rabada's day-changing spell, when Australia tumbled from 161-3 to 182-8.

The 22-year-old trapped Smith LBW for 25 and was clearly over the moon after taking such a huge wicket in a pivotal moment. Cummins also edged behind and Starc was clean bowled, with Rabada aiming a comment at the Australian as he went on his way.
