David Warner has guided Australia to 1-98 at lunch on day one of the second Test in Port Elizabeth
The fitness of experienced fast bowler Dale Steyn will be of even more interest to South Africa in the coming days after their most potent wicket-taker Kagiso Rabada was ruled out of the remainder of the four-test series with Australia.
Kagiso Rabada admits he has let himself and teammates down after being slapped with a two-Test ban that will force him to miss the rest of the series against Australia unless South Africa successfully appeal.
A level-one offence carries a punishment of one or two demerit points and a fine of up to half of his match fee.
Rabada was given three demerit points, which took his total to eight points in two years, activating an automatic two-match suspension.
"There was a lot of emotion from that last Test match going into this one and once again, as a fast bowler, you want to prove things to people and you want to show everyone you belong on this stage", he said. "I can't keep doing this because I am letting the team down and I am letting myself down", he was quoted as saying by ESPN Cricinfo.
But Rabada's disciplinary record is a problem which South Africa needs to deal with if it's not going to lose him regularly to bans. In the match, Australia won the toss earlier and made a decision to bat first. "I was just so pumped up".
"Rabada bowled exceptionally well throughout the whole match".
It is indeed insane to think that he is spearheading South Africa's pace attack at the age of 22 and already has 124 Test wickets in his kitty.
"It's bittersweet. I would've loved to have been playing the next game".
"It's a big series‚ there's a lot to play for. When he's in that sort of form, I'm very happy to have him in my side".
"I know there are times after a couple of overs you just give the umpire a tap and say "sorry" and they understand". It's important some of the players get around him before he is close to a batter to tell him, 'You know what?
Rabada took 11 for 141, with five-fors in both innings to become the South African with the second-best figures against Australia after Hugh Tayfield's 13 for 165 in the pre-isolation era.
