Dali Mpofu to represent Rabada at his appeal on Monday

Kagiso Rabada was handed a two-match ban for on-field altercations and Brett Lee believes that the decision was a bit harsh on the South Africa fast bowler

London:Former Australian captain and Cricket Australia director Mark Taylor believes that both South Africa and Australia are equally responsible for the negativity that surrounds the on-going Test series, where the first player to be suspended between both sides has been fast bowler Kagiso Rabada.

But it seems Rabada himself has had a change of mind on how guilty he is‚ which will strike observers as odd considering he is fighting match referee Jeff Crowe's decision to lump him with a fine and three demerit points.

"How I understand it is, the charge against KG (Kagiso Rabada) is level two with three demerit points and the charge against Dave (David Warner) was a level two with three demerit points".

"I've always loved rugby and cricket ... but I'm a bad player‚" he said in an interview with LawFuel New Zealand in December.

"I'll say 50/50 it's my fault".

A contrite Rabada said "I can't keep doing this because I'm letting the team down and I'm also letting myself down" during his post-match media conference in Port Elizabeth.

GOP lawmakers warn Trump against firing Mueller
Those memos could be fodder for Mueller's probe regarding potential obstruction of justice by the U.S. leader. They also recount different conversations he had with Comey, who kept notes on meetings with Trump.

"Olivier was the pick of our bowlers for South Africa A in their tour match against Australia while Morris has been in excellent form in domestic cricket, taking four wickets in an innings and making more than 150 runs, including a century, for the Multiply Titans in the Sunfoil Series against the log-leading Warriors", concluded Zondi. "I didn't feel anything in the moment".

"I must obey the rules", he said.

"I'm pretty happy not to be playing Test cricket when you scream a couple times with passion, give a few sends off & then get banned!" It was a shirt flick of two players and you would get one or two demerit points as a slap on the wrist because it wasn't full body contact. I guess I shouldn't really rub it into their faces.

South African captain Faf du Plessis has repeatedly made it clear the pair are a cut above everyone else when it comes to creating unplayable deliveries with the old ball.

The series, level at 1-1, continues in Cape Town on Thursday.
