Kagiso Rabada’s has now been reported for a level 1 offence for the send-off he gave to David Warner on the third day of the second Test in Port Elizabeth. This came after he brushed shoulders with Australia skipper Steve Smith in the first innings.
ICC took to Twitter to post: “Kagiso Rabada has been reported for a level 1 offence for the send-off given to David Warner during the third day of the Port Elizabeth Test. He has yet to respond to the charges. Details to follow in due course via the usual channels.”
Rabada could be banned for two Test matches if match referee Jeff Crowe feels that the pacer’s move to brush shoulders with Australia skipper Steve Smith in the ongoing Test was intentional. While Rabada had an hour long hearing with Crowe in the presence of umpire Kumar Dharmasena, skipper Faf du Plessis and team manager Mohammed Moosajee, AB de Villiers feels the pacer needs to get smarter.
