Banned Rabada returns to top of ICC rankings

"I would love to be playing", Rabada said, but "it doesn't look good".

Now England, Australia, and New Zealand will have the 3rd and 4th spots up for grabs that could earn them United States dollars 200,000 and USD 100,000 for reaching the third and fourth spot respectively.

He might have learnt his lesson for now but it has come at a huge cost to his side. The skill he has to make the ball talk in both directions. He didn't manage that but 11 balls later he bowled Mitchell Starc. Did you see that?' It's Test cricket.

Warner committed a level-two offence in the first Test.

In the vastly complicated environment of South Africa where politics and sport are inextricably intertwined, there is a young man who in many ways represents the best of the post-isolation transformation of sport in our country.

After the Aussies collapsed from 98/0 to be bowled out for 243, the home team scored 382 in their first innings at the crease to take a significant 139-run lead.

In Port Elizabeth, Dean Elgar and Hashim Amla planted roots with patient half centuries that frustrated the Australian attack. We understand that you can't have no boundaries, but we won't push the line.


"Our style of play is never wanting to swear at players and to trip them all the time", said du Plessis in the post-match press conference.

Du Plessis had lavished praise on Rabada and AB de Villiers. "But that's where I'm sitting as a player, not as an official", he said. "The events in the first Test were uncalled for and unnecessary, but I won't say that fired us up. All the stuff that he spoke about, he's coming through with it", du Plessis said.

"I have to move forward. I'm not happy about it", he added. With this, Rabada (902 points) becomes only the 23rd bowler to cross the 900 mark and only the fourth South African player to do so after Vernon Philander (highest of 912 points in 2013), Shaun Pollock (909 in 1999) and Dale Steyn (909 in 2014).

There was a shadow hanging over the 22-year-old fast bowler, however.

In 2014 he averaged 56.83 across three spiteful Test matches. "Now, I just want to keep performing and winning games for the team and to keep getting better and better". If I knew I had done it deliberately, then I would not have gone to contest. For me they are not. They called me Braveheart, etc etc.

Before his punishment was confirmed on Monday, Rabada himself appeared to concede that he was likely out of the rest of the series.

But first, there is a 10-day break between this game and the next, which is enough time for the dust to settle. His first breach came after an altercation with Sri Lanka's Niroshan Dickwella during an ODI at Cape Town past year. The two-test ban is on the table because of the 22-yearold quick bowler's previous disciplinary record. "It is important that you switch off.", he said.
