The Age – Rabada admitted his passion got the better of him in two incidents in which he gave send-offs to Steve Smith and David Warner.
- “It’s disappointing for Rabada but he’ll have an interesting couple of Test matches.
- I know the South Africans, playing us, I’ve heard them say a couple of times this is their big series and now he’s got to sit back and watch what’s going on out there.
- “It will be interesting to see how he comes back after that because he’ll be hurting, no doubt, over the next couple of Test matches.”
- (Rabada) is only young and made a couple of mistakes, but I’m sure he’ll learn going forward that you just can’t get that close to the batter.
- South Africa had made noises about launching an appeal against Rabada being found guilty of making deliberate and inappropriate contact with Smith.
