Kagiso Rabada will be seen in playing 11 during 3rd Test at Newland. He is charged up to lead South Africa bowling attack.
Rabada appeal against the charge worked in his favor. Earlier he was found guilty of making inappropriate contact with Australian captain Steve Smith and charged with 2 match ban.
Three demerit points were imposed at Rabada after 2nd Test. Which is now reduced to one demerit points. He still has to pay 25% of his match fee
South Africa definitely get relief as their match-winner bowler is available to play remaining test matches. Australia found it difficult to cope up against Rabada. Now once againKagiso Rabada will be a major threat for Australian batsman. Whereas South Africa need consistency in their batting department to put pressure on Australia bowlers.
The series is balanced equally between both teams. Newland test match will decide the fate of the series. However at the present momentum is with proteas after 2nd test win. The really look forward to carrying it to achieve another test match win to take lead over Australia.
Note: The 3rd test match will start on 22 March 2018
