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

  • Second Test Australia fightback on day two but AB de Villiers masterclass takes Proteas ahead

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 was due to attend a disciplinary hearing chaired by International Cricket Council match referee Jeff Crowe after being charged with a level-two offence for making physical contact with Australian captain Steve Smith while celebrating Smith's wicket in the first innings.

Saker said Australia had not lost hope.

An arrest warrant for Hickman notes that he struck Rush multiple times, causing abrasions and swelling to his head. The Buncombe County District Attorney's Office announced that Christopher Hickman was arrested late Thursday.

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".
