Kagiso Rabada suspended for two Tests by ICC

Kagiso Rabada suspended for two Tests by ICC

Kagiso Rabada's fourth 10-wicket haul in just 28 Test matches propelled South Africa to a six-wicket victory over Australia - but could prove to be his last action in the four-match series. In what is being termed as one of the finest display of cricket, Kagiso Rabada gave one his finest performance in the match. 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.

He has now also been reported for a send-off to batsman David Warner on day three, the lowest level-one offence.

Rabada received a fine of 50 percent of his match fee and three demerit points, which took him to eight during the 24-month period, resulting in an automatic two-match suspension.

"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".

"I think I have probably been in all circumstances, I've gone too far with send-offs, and then other times where you pull it back, you know you have to be controlled", Siddle said on Monday.

"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". This job fell to match referee Jeff Crowe, who had to decide whether Rabada would be suspended for the remainder of the series for his shoulder bump with Steven Smith during Australia's first innings. He had the opportunity to avoid the contact, and I could not see any evidence to support the argument that the contact was accidental, ' said Crowe. "I can't keep doing this because I am letting the team down and I am letting myself down", Rabada said. Rabada got his third in quick succession as Mitchell Starc (1) edged a drive to wicketkeeper Quinton de Kock.

By the end, he had amassed figures of 11-150, including the key wickets of Usman Khawaja on 75, Steve Smith on 11, and Mitchell Marsh on 45. "I'm not happy about it".

South Africa made a bit of a heavy work of reaching their modest target of 101, before captain Faf du Plessis (2) and Theunis de Bruyn (11) guided them to 102 for four.

Nathan Lyon dismissed de Villiers for 28, reducing South Africa to 81-4, but the visitors didn't have enough runs to play with and the Proteas got home.

Du Plessis also lauded the efforts of Dean Elgar and Hashim Amla, both of whom battled tough conditions on Day II of the Test, building South Africa's platform to take a first-innings lead. Tim Paine was left unbeaten on 28. With his score on six he was dropped at first slip by Mitchell Marsh off Hazlewood.

Series: The four-match series is level at 1-1.
