South Africa pace bowler Kagiso Rabada has been banned for the final Test against England following his celebration of Joe Root’s dismissal on the first day of the third Test.

The seamer screamed next to the England skipper after bowling him for 27 in Port Elizabeth.

The International Cricket Council has given him one demerit point, which means he now has four in a two-year period.

That triggers a one-Test ban.

The fourth Test of the series, which is level at 1-1, begins on 24 January in Johannesburg.

The ICC found Rabada guilty of “using language, actions or gestures which disparage or which could provoke an aggressive reaction from a batter upon his or her dismissal during an international match”.(BBC)
