Rabada's thrilling display of fast bowling helped South Africa to a 72-run victory in the first test at Newlands, and catapulted the young firebrand to the summit of the International Cricket Council's test rankings.

Bhuvneshwar Kumar achieves Careers Best but Kohli & Pujara slip in ICC Rankings: - Well, Hood news is coming out for the Indian fast Swing bowler Bhuvneshwar Kumar as per the reports his ICC ranking jumped eight places to 22 because of his first impressive innings against South Africa.

Rabada‚ who won the U19 World Cup in the UAE in 2014‚ is the seventh South African bowler to top the bowling rankings after Aubrey Faulkner‚ Hugh Tayfield‚ Peter Pollock‚ Shaun Pollock‚ Dale Steyn and Vernon Philander. "Its already a good start to the year for me as well as for team and hopefully we continue in putting winning performances", said Rabada. "I just bowl wherever the team wants me to bowl, but obviously I would like to open". There is always something else you can work on and that is what I have done in my career so far. "Sometimes I feel I am bowling quickly and the speed gun says 145 or sometimes I can feel like I bowl a decent ball and the speed gun says 131", he said.

White House doctor: Donald Trump in 'excellent health'
The president's remarks angered several countries, prompting them to issue strongly-worded statements condemning his comment. And other Trump backers made clear they wanted to steer clear of questions about whether the president is a racist.

Rabada's pace and accuracy are his sharp weapons to peer through any batting but the bowler feels the speedgun does not always show the right pace.

"I need to do more, I am always striving for perfection, even though you will never reach it". "I just like to bowl wherever the team requires me to and set my own aspirations aside". At Newlands, he bowled second change and often with a slightly older ball, which also required him to have a balanced approach between attack and defense. I have been happy with the role I have been given, which is to try and get wickets and defend at the same time. It would have been an extra bonus bowling with someone of his calibre. Its that dream when you start playing the game to be the No. 1 bowler in the world.
