Kagiso Rabada, who took 6 wickets in the third test match against the Indian team, has got his name recorded in an unwanted record. However, no bowler would like to see his name in this list. In fact, 26-year-old Rabada overstepped several times in the ongoing three-match Test series between India and South Africa. He has bowled 41 no balls single-handedly in this series.
This poor performance by Rabada has propelled him to the top of the list of no-balls bowled by South African bowlers in three or fewer matches. Earlier this record was in the name of fast bowler Dale Steyn, who bowled 34 no balls in three Test matches against England in 2004–05, which was his debut series.
Kagiso Rabada has performed brilliantly in the ongoing test series against India. He took 7 wickets in the first test match. In the first innings, he took three wickets for 72 runs. Whereas in the second test, he took 4 wickets for 42 runs.
