South Africa’s fast bowler Kagiso Rabada impressed one and all with his outstanding performance in the first Test match of the ongoing series between Australia and New Zealand.
South Africa suffered a big blow when Dale Steyn was ruled out for the match after picking a shoulder injury during the match. Dale Steyn’s absence from the match meant Proteas were a bowler short and there was no one to lead the bowling attack. But, cometh the time cometh the man. Kagiso Rabada stepped up and delivered a match-winning performance for South Africa. Rabada bowled brilliantly throughout the match and took 7 wickets, including a five-for in the second innings.
Rabada, who is new to Test cricket, bowled fast and with absolute control of line and length. He swung the ball both ways at pace and got better of Australian batsmen, specially in the second innings, in which he claimed 5 wickets guiding South Africa to a thrilling victory at WACA in the first match of the series.
Rabada bowled many good deliveries in the match but there was one over he bowled to Adam Voges that stood out. It was a breathtaking over. Watch it here:
