South Africa cricket player Kagiso Rabada is one of the best bowler around the world today. The cricketer’s 150+ KMPH deliveries can panic the best batsmen of the world. Besides his bowling, the 25-year old’s aggressive behaviour is what a batsman needs to be afraid about. Rabada’s aggression has many times landed him in trouble.

After Kagiso Rabada received 4th demerit point he was banned to play the 4th test match of the series. According to ICC’s rule if a player completes 4 demerit points in the past 24 months he has to face a ban of 1 test or 2 limited-overs matches.
The absence of Rabada hurt the Proteas side in the final test of the series. The hosts lost the match by 191 runs. English side won the series by 3-1. Ben Stokes won player of the series award for his all-round performance throughout the series. Now both sides will face each other in ODI and T20I series of 3 matches each.
