With Rabada only one infraction away from a suspension, the possibility of him missing the following two Test matches is yet to be ruled out.
By accepting a penalty of three demerit points, Warner will be free to play in Port Elizabeth on Friday. The hearing on the Proteas bowler will be held on Friday after he chose to challenge the decision.
In February previous year, he was fined 50 per cent of match fee and acquired three demerit points for inappropriate and deliberate physical contact with Sri Lanka’s Niroshan Dickwella.
Rabada was sacked up.
“I think it (the ball) will move around a bit”.
“We’ve seen so many different things of late”, he said. “It’s up to the umpires and the ICC match officials to make that call”.
“You are allowed to celebrate sometimes”, said Philander. “Let’s hope that’s not the case”, Sport24 quoted Philander as saying.
Following that, Warner was fined 75 per cent of his match fee by the International Cricket Council (ICC) while de Kock was fined 25 per cent of his match fee by match referee Jeff Crowe.
Rabada came into this match, having accumulated five demerit points over the last 13 months.
Rabada recovered from an expensive opening spell before lunch to trap Australia captain Steve Smith and Shaun Marsh lbw, before then taking the wicket of Mitchell Marsh at the end of the second session to change the complexion of the contest in the space of two overs.
Photos emerged prior to day one of South African supporters preparing masks of rugby star Sonny Bill Williams.
Smith’s facial expression suggested he was far from pleased with the spray.
But aside from him and the masterful AB de Villiers, the Proteas’ batting looked flaky, and with Hashim Amla a shadow of the player he once was, and important cogs Dean Elgar and Faf du Plessis struggling as well, what should be a fearsome line-up has some gaping cracks. “That’s what we are here to do”, Smith said on Tuesday, via ESPNCricinfo.
“He’s sat in front of the media and said “yep, you know what I said was either defending my family”, like he did in this last one”.
Feb, 2017: Inappropriate and deliberate physical contact with Sri Lanka’s Niroshan Dickwella. Rabada, after dismissing Shikhar Dhawan, waved at the departing batsman and also had made a comment.
At Kingsmead, Rabada gave David Warner a send-off but it did not appear to include swearing; he passed his arm over his mouth as he completed his sentence.
