Rabada wins South Africa’s top player prize

JOHANNESBURG: Kagiso Rabada, the world’s number one Test bowler, was on Saturday named South Africa’s Cricketer of the Year. The award came at the end of a 12-month period during which Rabada, 23, was a consistent match-winner -– and subject of disciplinary hearings. Rabada took 72 wickets at an average of 19.52 in 12 Tests going back to a series in England last July. He missed one Test in England because he was banned after reaching a demerit points threshold –- and would have missed the last two Tests against…

Rabada appeal hearing set for Monday

CAPE TOWN: Suspended Proteas speedster Kagiso Rabada will have his appeal hearing with the ICC on Monday, March 19.

PORT ELIZABETH, South Africa: Kagiso Rabada took 11 wickets in the match but may yet turn from hero to villain as South Africa beat Australia by six wickets in the second test on Monday to level the four-match series. South Africa made heavy work of reaching their modest target before captain Faf du Plessis (2) and Theunis de Bruyn (11) guided them to 102 for four.

Rabada ban a ‘big loss’ for Test cricket, says South African captain

LONDON: South Africa stand-in skipper Dean Elgar has said Kagiso Rabada's ban from the second match of the England series is a "big loss for Test cricket" and not just the Proteas. The tourists suffered a thumping 211-run loss, with more than a day to spare, in the first Test at Lord's on Sunday when they collapsed to 119 all out after being set 331 to win. South Africa now have just a few days to recover before the second Test at Nottingham's Trent Bridge starts on Friday. But their hopes of levelling the…
