CSA to seek legal advice on Rabada ICC ruling

The kids from Greenwood Primary‚ a wonderfully woke bunch‚ yelled their own answer to the question en masse from their perch high in the stands at St George's Park on Monday. While captain Faf du Plessis does not see swearing as part of South Africa's style of play, it has featured in Rabada's send-offs, and may yet do so again, though he will direct his expletives elsewhere.

He added: "As I had said before this game, Rabada and (Mitchell) Starc would be the two bowlers to look out for and they would be the ones to get excessive reverse swing since they are exceptional bowlers".

Rabada was hit with a further charge on Monday, a level one offence, following a send-off of David Warner on Sunday.

"There are a lot of grey areas but rules are rules". The reason why we went for a hearing [on the Smith charge] was because we believe there's not a lot of consistency.

Rabada was found guilty of a Level 2 ICC Code of Conduct offence of "inappropriate and deliberate physical contact with a player" and suspended on the grounds of the same. I didn't feel any contact at all.

"With the Stokes incident I didn't contest it because I knew I did it", he said.

Before his punishment was confirmed on Monday, Rabada himself appeared to concede that he was likely out of the rest of the series.

"It's bittersweet. I would've loved to have been playing the next game", said the 22-year-old.

Oil prices fall as relief over falling United States rig count fades
WTI for April delivery traded at $62.17 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange, up 13 cents at 8:46 a.m.in Tokyo. Brent crude futures were at $65.38 per barrel, down 11 cents, or 0.2 per cent, from their previous close.

"It was right up there with the best feeling ever", he said. "Especially coming off a performance like that".

As far as the fast bowler is concerned, the second Test ought to be remembered for his 10-wicket haul, which included a fascinating spell where he took 6-54.

The Proteas had a lead of 20 runs heading into the first session, but thanks to AB de Villiers, who finished 126 not out, and cameo innings from both Vernon Philander (36) and Keshav Maharaj (30), South Africa amassed a lead of 139.

That was certainly the case in Port Elizabeth against the Australians, where de Villiers' century on an arduous pitch was of such quality that the opposition's reaction, not for the first time in his career, was tantamount to shrugging their shoulders and applauding.

I think that showed today. To be honest, I just let it out.

The hard wicket is likely to provide more bounce than in either Durban or Port Elizabeth where the first two games were played and that should suit the tall Morne Morkel, who has announced he will retire at the end of the series.
