CSA to appeal Rabada's 2 match suspension


Rabada, named man of the match with figures of 11-150 as the Proteas squared the four-match series at 1-1, was handed three demerit points, prompting an automatic two-match suspension for the accumulation of eight demerit points within a 24-month period.

South African captain Faf du Plessis downplayed Rabada's contact with Smith as simply a "shirt flick" between two players.

Philander posted a video clip to twitter to try and support his argument. Trying some football skills to get a penalty???

"Rabada was outstanding throughout the second Test".

There is still every chance Rabada will stay sidelined for the deciding matches.

Meanwhile, Smith was earlier quoted as saying that he doesn't hold any grudge against Rabada and his team want the star pacer to play in the remaining two Tests in Cape Town and Johannesburg.

The ICC will name the judicial commissioner to hear the appeal on Friday, which means the hearing is likely to start on Monday.

Philander said Smith was equally guilty and had milked the incident.

There have been several other minor incidents during the series, which is tied at 1-1, where the umpires have had to intervene to cool tensions on the field. "He could have avoided any contact but to me he is just as guilty. That's how I felt anyway", he said.

"I take no pleasure in seeing a player suspended, particularly a young player of Kagiso's talent, but he has now breached the ICC code of conduct on a number of occasions. There's been too much of this in-your-face celebration when batsmen are dismissed, and the Australian bowlers have been as guilty as the South African bowlers at times", Taylor told Channel Nine, via ESPNCricinfo.

"It will probably stay at zero per cent".

"I certainly don't think I baited Kagiso in any way". Taylor, a Cricket Australia Board director, believes Australia's Test players should be on their "final warning" from match officials for breeding an ugly atmosphere.

Even Rabada has come out and said that he did not feel any contact and he did not deliberately push Smith. "There's a bigger thing here - there's a series that needs to be played".

The 22-year-old appealed the International Cricket Council (ICC) suspension on Wednesday.

Former Bullseye host Jim Bowen has died aged 80
Mr Clayton, 65, said it would be "stretching" it to say he played a part in helping Mr Bowen get the role. In 2011 Bowen suffered from two strokes, one at home and a second mild stroke in hospital.

A bid they were unsuccessful with at every turn.
