Rabada took 11 for 141, with five-fors in both innings to become the South African with the second-best figures against Australia after Hugh Tayfield's 13 for 165 in the pre-isolation era. Perhaps the image of Faf Du Plessis in a towel distracted everyone's gaze from Rabada looming like a night club bouncer trying to approach and intimidate the 170 cm angry dwarf that is Warner, who at that time did not require the intervention of the opposing players as it was his own teammates who were restraining him.

"Obviously these days, the attention has changed so much to what is allowed and what is not allowed and what is within the spirit of the game".
South African speedster Kagiso Rabada has wrested back the top spot among bowlers in the ICC Test Player Rankings and also crossed the coveted 900-point mark in ratings after his player of the match effort during his side's second Test against Australia in Port Elizabeth.
The only sanction Kohli received was one demerit point and a 25% match-fee fine when he argued with the umpire about the ball being wet in the Centurion Test. "It doesn't stop", he said.
"Kagiso Rabada has been reported for a level 1 offence for the send-off given to David Warner during the third day of the Port Elizabeth Test". PUNISHMENT: Fined 15 per cent of match fee and given one demerit point.
"I don't know what I'm thinking actually". Did you see that?
Du Plessis argued Test cricket is becoming too sanitised.

Still the botched chances hurt. "I think it's important and the half-backs this week will play a big part in the game", he said. Scotland captain John Barclay conceded a penalty in his half but Sexton, again, kicked for touch rather than the posts.
"We as a team have got no issues the way the Australian team play their brand of cricket". This, for me, is an important part of Test cricket - the battles that you face.
"He (Rabada) has to show that passion, otherwise you can just put a bowling machine and robot to bat". "A lot has been said about how wonderful KG's rise is, best strike-rate in world cricket at the moment or ever, so I don't think you have to say too much more".
Rabada was subsequently given a demerit point for his behaviour, resulting in a one-Test suspension.
"He had the opportunity to avoid the contact‚ and I could not see any evidence to support the argument that the contact was accidental", Crowe said.
"We were outplayed in all aspects", Smith said. At that stage it looked as though Morkel had played his final Test, having announced before this series that he would be retiring at its end. There were other factors, I had become a dad, there were a lot of things happening in my life. The first for making contact with Steve Smith's shoulder in the first innings after trapping him lbw and the second for giving Warner one of his now infamous sendoffs. More often than not, I try to generate a lot of energy and go into an overdrive of intensity.
"I didn't even feel contact in that moment because I was so pumped up".
"I just said I would like the same to apply to KG".
"It's not the first time Rabada has been forced to the sidelines, he was banned for the second Test against England in July previous year after swearing at Ben Stokes, with the punishment pushing him to four demerit points".
