Kagiso Rabada makes contact with Steve Smith during celebration

Kagiso Rabada makes contact with Steve Smith during celebration

South African fast bowler Kagiso Rabada ripped the heart out of Australia's batting when he took four wickets in seven balls on the first day of the second Test on Friday.

The dismissal had a greater impact than merely removing Australia's captain because Rabada followed up with animated send-off and was obviously pumped up.

Rabada finished with bowling figures of 5-96 while the 21-year-old Lungi Ngidi, who was a surprise pick ahead of Morne Morkel, took 3-51 including bowling David Warner for 63.

The hearing will be heard by match referee Jeff Crowe on Saturday evening, with Rabada set to contest the charge.

Rabada was banned for one Test during a series in England previous year after accumulating a total of four demerit points when he was penalised with one point after a send-off of Ben Stokes.

Rabada's running battle with the tourists continued when he was sent out as nightwatchman on day one. Smith was given out by Dharmasena and, in celebration, Rabada continued in his follow-through, shouting "Yes, yes", in Smith's direction.

Rabada's loss would be a massive blow to the hosts' hopes of recording their first home series win over Australia in the post-apartheid era.

The Australian opener had been the focus of much of the build-up to the second test after an ugly spat last Sunday with South Africa wicketkeeper Quinton de Kock in the first test in Durban, which the tourists won by 118 runs.

"He would leave a massive hole". Mitchell Marsh edged a four but then was caught behind off an inside edge. Immediately after the interval, he removed Pat Cummins with one that moved away and bowled Mitchell Starc - that moved away, too, and clipped off stump.

While on July, 2017 he used inappropriate language after dismissing England all-rounder Ben Stokes, was charged with one demerit point and fined 15 per cent of match fee and got suspended for one Test. Paine was the last wicket to fall when Ngidi bowled him.

"A tough day for Australia ... but that's the positive side of it and we've still got the best bowling attack in the world ... and we're feeling confident".
