Kagiso Rabada yet again dismissed Ben Stokes on day four of the South Africa-England Test but celebrated silently unlike the last time that earned him his fourth demerit point. Rabada will miss out the second Test against England after his unsportsmanlike conduct during the first innings.

Kagiso Rabada was fined with a demerit point after he celebrated Ben Stokes' wicket using inappropriate language, which resulted in him being handed a Test match suspension according to the rules laid by ICC. The 22-year old had earlier accumulated three demerit points for his infamous confrontation with Sri Lanka's Niroshan Dickwella during the 4th ODI against Sri Lanka on February 8th this year.

During the first innings against England Rabada was heard saying “F**k O**” to Ben Stokes that cost him 15% of his match fees as well as a demerit point.

However, the 22-year old did not repeat the same mistake in the second innings. Rabada had Stokes plumb in front of stumps after the Englishman failed to play an inswinging good length delivery. The 22-year old celebrated the victory rubbing his head before standing captain Dean Elgar put his hand across his mouth. Rabada then himself covered his mouth with a vertical finger gesturing silence as opposed to what cost him a match in the last innings.
