Kagiso Rabada rips through Australia again as South Africa level series

David Warner ball tampering claims South Africa Australia 2nd Test Port Elizabeth cricket

Much of that may be put down to the absence of Kagiso Rabada - South Africa's 11-wicket spearhead in the second Test has been banned for the remainder of the tour after racking up the demerit points in his altercation with Steve Smith.

Out on the field Rabada was busy completing his match haul of 11/150‚ the overriding reason why South Africa won the second test against Australia by six wickets to level the series. Rabada took the first three wickets of the fourth day - and started by ripping out Mitchell Marsh's off stump in the first over - to improve his match-haul to 11 and hurry the Australians out for 239 and another batting failure in their second innings.

But he pleaded guilty to a second charge of provoking Australia batsman David Warner, when he screamed in Warner's face after dismissing him in the second innings. "He received a further 15% fine of his match fee and an additional demerit point bringing his total to nine", ICC press release stated.

"Our strike rate is zero per cent at the moment with trying to challenge these cases, it will probably stay at zero", du Plessis said, referencing Quintion de Kock's hearing last week and his own ball-tampering charge that resulted from "mint-gate".

Although crestfallen with the verdict, Rabada maintains he is innocent.

'I take no pleasure in seeing a player suspended, particularly a young player of Kagiso's talent, but he has now breached the ICC code of conduct on a number of occasions'.

Logan Capital Management Inc. Grows Holdings in Fastenal
Baird restated a "buy" rating and issued a $57.00 price target on shares of Fastenal in a research note on Tuesday, March 6th. It dropped, as 41 investors sold FISV shares while 269 reduced holdings. 47 funds opened positions while 179 raised stakes.

"Mitchell Marsh probably deserved a hundred in the first test to be fair, but if we're getting batters scoring big hundreds it certainly helps us out a hell of a lot".

"The charge against KG (Rabada) is a level 2 with three demerit points, and the charge against Davey (Warner) is a level two with three demerit points".

Warner accepted a Level 2 offence and was fined 75% of his match fee by the ICC over the incident, but avoided a one-Test ban.

Rabada claimed the man of the match award and now both the teams will lock horns with each other in the third game in Cape Town to be played between 22nd and 26th March. "I can't keep doing this because I'm letting the team down and I'm also letting myself down", he told reporters after starring in the six-wicket win.

Du Plessis alleged that Crowe made it clear he didn't want to suspend Australia's vice-captain and that shaped his final punishment. I never tried to appeal that one because I knew that I did it. There's a whole lot of emotion and pride.

"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".
