Rabada back as No. 1 Test bowler after 11-wicket haul

"I didn't even feel contact in that moment because I was so pumped up".

He swore at Rabada after being dismissed on day four of the second Test.

South Africa reached the finishing line midway between lunch and tea.

There was a shadow hanging over the 22-year-old fast bowler, however. Rabada took the first three wickets of the fourth day - and started by ripping out Mitchell Marsh's off stump in the first over - to improve his match-haul to 11 and hurry the Australians out for 239 and another batting failure in their second innings. The hosts were clinical from the outset, but no more than when it took Rabada and Co just over an hour to claim the last five Australian wickets to wrap up the visitors' second innings.

Rabada had accepted a second charge under 2.1.7 of the code - using language, actions or gestures which could provoke an aggressive reaction from a batsman upon his or her dismissal, Sport24 reported.

Pat Cummins fell to a sharp catch at gully by Theunis de Bruyn and Mitchell Starc edged a drive to wicketkeeper Quinton de Kock.

On resumption, Josh Hazlewood (1-26) had Markram caught in the slips but Hashim Amla (27) and AB de Villiers (28) calmed down the nerves in the Proteas dressing room with a 49-run stand for the third wicket.

Tim Paine was left unbeaten on 28.

South Africa captain Faf du Plessis was unhappy with the ICC after it banned paceman Kagiso Rabada for the final two Test matches of a thrilling series against Australia.

The points resulting from Rabada's latest misdeed have triggered a two-Test ban that will force him to miss the rest of the current series, unless South Africa successfully appeal.

Rabada contested the charge, but was found guilty and slapped with a 50% match fee fine along with three demerit points.

Before the verdict was announced, a remorseful Rabada said: "It's going to have to stop". "I'm letting the team down and letting myself down".

Holding has called on umpires to start using the "red and yellow card" system introduced by the International Cricket Council late past year in a bid to clean up the game following a series in South Africa which has given the sport a black eye.

After almost two full Test matches Australia's bowlers finally found a way to get out AB de Villiers, but from the moment Mitchell Marsh dropped a sitter from Aiden Markram off the bowling of Josh Hazlewood, it was clear the visitors were never a hope of defending the slender target they had set South Africa to win.

For his part, Rabada said he would need to avoid getting into close proximity with opponents. That brought him a further 15% match fee fine and one demerit point, making it a total of nine demerit points and a total fine of 65% of his match fee. I don't think we've got any indiscretions as far as I know.

This job fell to match referee Jeff Crowe, who had to decide whether Rabada would be suspended for the remainder of the series for his shoulder bump with Steven Smith during Australia's first innings.
