Kabiso Rabada, is quite literally, on the charge in Port Elizabeth.
Days after being charged level 2 offence for shouldering Australia captain Steve Smith, South Africa pacer Kagiso Rabada has once again found himself on the wrong side of ICC’s Code of Conduct after his send-off to David Warner. The 22-year-old was on Sunday charged with a level 1 offence after the incident involving Warner during day three of the Port Elizabeth Test. The verdicts of the two charges are not out yet but it’s fair to say Rabada is looking at a definite ban.
Rabada had shouted in celebration and approached Smith aggressively in the first innings after winning a leg before wicket decision against him and the shoulders of the players made contact.
His six wickets in the second innings has put South Africa on the verge of levelling the series 1-1 as he ripped apart the visitors’ batting on day four.
This just adds to the drama of what has been a bad-tempered series.
