Rabada picks up second disciplinary charge
Port Elizabeth: Kagiso Rabada has been charged for a second alleged breach of cricket’s code of conduct for his actions after dismissing Australia batsman David Warner in the second test in Port Elizabeth on Sunday.
The International Cricket Council says it has charged the South Africa fast bowler with a level one offense for screaming in the face of Warner after bowling him at the start of Australia’s second innings on the third day’s play.
It’s the second disciplinary charge for Rabada in the match after he was reported for a more serious level two offense for bumping into Australia captain Steve Smith in the first innings. That incident on its own has the potential to see Rabada banned for two tests and miss the rest of the Australia series.
Rabada had a disciplinary hearing over the Smith shoulder bump after play on Sunday. The ICC is yet to release its decision on that charge.
