But the 22-year-old has been also found guilty of two ICC charges of misconduct for aggressive wicket celebrations during the match. But the yin came with the yang.
Rabada took the first three of the five Australian wickets that fell for the addition of 59 runs on Monday. Only Dale Steyn has more ten-wicket hauls; one more.
"I think all the quicks are going really well". Du Plessis fielded his questions before Rabada‚ who sat quietly alongside his captain as he awaited his turn‚ taking sidelong glances at a television to his left that showed highlights of him taking his wickets. If I do get banned, I have to see it as a big learning curve.
Rabada's strike-rate now sits at 38.9 . It is the joint-most 10-wicket haul by any bowler in Test history before the age of 23, along with Pakistan great Waqar Younis.

"With the Stokes incident I didn't contest it because I knew I did it", he said. Same thing happened in this Test match.
Do YOU want to write for GiveMeSport? "To be honest, I just let it out", he added. "I went out and even some of the Australians made some jokes".
"It's bittersweet, I would've loved to be playing in the next game. I haven't heard today, but before today they were all feeling fine, so hopefully with a good 10-day break they can freshen up a little bit".
It is indeed insane to think that he is spearheading South Africa's pace attack at the age of 22 and already has 124 Test wickets in his kitty.
