Kagiso Rabada, De Kock Fight
After bowling failure in the first innings, South Africa’s batting department is also struggling. At the end of the second day, they had lost their 3 wickets on 36 runs. We witness some odds between South Africa’s star players Kagiso Rabada and Quinton de Kock during India’s innings.
The incident happened when Ravindra Jadeja defended the ball and it rolled over to Kagiso Rabada. Frustrated bowler threw the ball back to the keeper without noticing his position. But wicket-keeper de Kock was not expecting the throw so he showed a late reaction when picking the ball. Rabada outburst on de Kock as both batsmen stole the runs between this.
Quinton de Kock too hits back at the bowler as he felt it was an unnecessary throw. South African captain Faf du Plessis was seen having a talk with Rabada after the blunder. However, Kagiso Rabada was the only pacer who got wickets in the innings. He picked 3 wickets in his spell of 30 overs.
