Rabada gets in Warner's face as SAfrica control 2nd test

Usman Khawaja scored 75 to lead an Australia fightback on the third day of the second Test against South Africa at St. George's Park, but succumbed just before close of play after seeing the tourists cancel out a first innings deficit.
David Warner was in the midst of the action once again, this time on the receiving end of another over-the-top celebration from fast bowler Kagiso Rabada, as Australia fought to stay in the second test in South Africa on Sunday.
If there's anything that can be learned from the recent spats between Australia and South Africa's cricketers these last few weeks, it's that our trans-Tasman neighbours are hypocrites when it comes to sledging.
De Villiers did not play Test cricket between January 2016 and December 2017, after he decided he needed time away from the game.
De Villiers reached his 22nd Test ton prior to lunch, ending a barren run that stretched back to a knock of 148 against West Indies at Cape Town over three years ago. De Villiers' century, set up on Day 2 and completed on Day 3, took South Africa to a position of control.
Rabada had earlier dismissed David Warner (13) - although he risks further sanction after a send-off that saw him scream in the batsman's face - and Shaun Marsh (1), while fellow seamer Lungi Ngidi removed Cameron Bancroft, the opener bowled for 24 via an unfortunate deflection off his left boot. De Villiers suggested that South Africa's best bet might be to surround their bowler in the aftermath of a wicket.
Rabada bowled Warner with a handsome delivery on day three then stormed over to the vanquished vice-captain and screamed in his face.
Rabada had earlier courted more trouble ahead of a hearing on Sunday night (Monday morning AEDT) that was set to nearly certainly confirm his suspension for the rest of the series.
While South Africa's best young bowler was both good and bad, its best batsman was sublime.
De Villiers made batting look outrageously easy but he insisted it was anything but, especially when he approached three figures.
But not everyone was outraged by the 22-year-old's outburst.
"It felt like 10 out of 10 to get my hundred, it was right up there with one of my best, and I was very nervous in the 90s".
Don't get me wrong, there is a tinge of poor form from the South African fans makingmasks of SBW to taunt Warner, but it would be little different to how Australian fans welcome visiting teams. He returned to tests late previous year. I told Vern I was struggling to breathe and my legs went numb.
"I know there are times after a couple of overs you just give the umpire a tap and say "sorry" and they understand".
"If you take out the first three conference games, we've played as well as anybody on the defensive end in the conference". Point guard Matt Farrell , the team's second-leading scorer, also missed five games with his own injury during that time .
Southampton have two of the best full-backs in the league and Pellegrino is expected to stick with them for this game. This run has seen them sink to their lowest ebb of the season and leave fans desperate for some hope to cling to.
Hughton says Brighton were not at the level expected if they are to stay in the Premier League , and insists the best side won. It did little to diminish Allardyce's view of Rooney's overall contribution, with the 63-year-old singing his praises.
