ICC charges South Africa's Rabada with Level Two offence

ICC charges South Africa's Rabada with Level Two offence

Rabada trapped Smith leg before wicket on the opening day of the second Test at St George's Park on Friday and appeared to brush against the batsman in his celebration as the Australian walked down the pitch. Rabada, following up on his bowling heroics, helped South Africa with 17 not out as nightwatchman.

South Africas Kagiso Rabada charged with level two offence by ICC after shoulder contact with Australia captain Steve Smith.

The Australian opener had been the focus of much of the build-up to the second test after an ugly spat last Sunday with South Africa wicketkeeper Quinton de Kock in the first test in Durban, which the tourists won by 118 runs. He is claiming the contact with Smith was unintentional.

"He's sat in front of the media and said "yep, you know what I said was either defending my family", like he did in this last one".

"Sometimes there is a fine line whether to celebrate too hard". Smith introduced Lyon in the final over and he got the ball to turn and bounce. "They did last week and I have no doubt they'll make the decision they think is worthy". If Rabada is found guilty of the level two offence, it carries a minimum sanction of three points. He would incur another ban if he picked up another demerit point.

Pat Cummins took the wicket of Rabada, who chopped on for a sprightly 29 after being pushed up the order in the dying stages of play on day one.

Rabada finished with five for 96, having done all his damage on either side of tea, taking the key wicket of Australian captain Steve Smith, then following up by dismissing the Marsh brothers, Shaun and Mitchell, in his next over.

Then, when I moved to Liverpool , is the price tag too big? "We had enough chances to win but it is not enough when you concede". He believes leading clubs can not complain about style when the philosophy of their managers is well established.

He had Smith and Shaun Marsh out lbw, with both failing with reviews, and Mitchell Marsh was caught behind by de Kock attempting an expansive drive at an inopportune moment just before tea.

Off-spinner Nathan Lyon said at the day one post-match press conference Australia would need to bowl well collectively on Saturday if they were to protect their sub-par first innings total of 243.

Mitchell Starc (8) was Rabada's fifth victim, clean bowled to leave Australia reeling on 182-8.

It was a day of contrasts.

Warner, who was fined 75 percent of his match fee for the De Kock incident in Durban, started slowly but went on to bat with his usual aggression before Lungi Ngidi beat his defences with an angled delivery which hit the top of his off stump.

Two more wickets fell quickly after the interval, including that of Warner for 63, made off 100 balls with nine fours.
