Rabada got a demerit point (and therefore an automatic suspension) for this? #SAvEng
 
Brett Lee would hv been banned every 4th match if celebration like this get demerit points..
 
The @ICC gave SA’s best player a demerit point for this celebration. As a result he misses the next match. It’s like they’re trying to kill test cricket.

What kind of sport is cricket if you get banned for celebrating?
 
Rabada gets a demerit for this, what did Buttler get for abusing Philander?
 
1-game ban for this? Have a day off @ICC
 
KG getting a demerit point for this. Clown ICC at it again.
 
Just for this?

ICC is trying to destroy our boy 😭
 
Kagiso #Rabada given a demerit point and will miss the 4th test for this 😲

Thoughts on the ban and the "excessive celebration" rule? 🤔

#SAvsENG #BetwaySquad
 
😡🤯 Rabada has received a demerit point for this... once again the ICC draining the passion from the game. A game without this passion and raw emotion is not one we’re interested in! #ICC #SAvENG #Rabada

Banned for this celebration??? 😂 Cricket is shit
 
In reply to @SuperSportTV
Oh gosh, I think he must celebrate with a cup of tea and some pastry to avoid being banned😹
 
So what exactly is wrong with this? All I see is a passionate bowler happy to see his hard work paid off.
 
If this can end bowlers with match bans...then sorry to say @ICC you are just taking “aggression” and “emotions” out of the game!

What do you expect bowlers to do? Bowl a bouncer and then run up to batters and politely say that “Sorry for that it wont happen again” 🤷🏻‍♂️
 
I love this passion
Nothing against the spirit of the game, stop curbing the amazing young man's passion for the game pls

How objective is a photo vs a microphone. The only evidence from the image is a celebration coming from the bowlers run up into the wicket. He is not even looking at the batter. The batter is looking at him. There is not even a stare down.
 
Struggling to see what Rabada has done wrong here.

Harsh suspension? #SAvENG
 
ICC IAAF

🤝🏽🤝🏽🤝🏽🤝🏽🤝🏽
Banning South Africa's greatest athletes because they scared of them.
 
JOKE...seriously what dead-beat felt Kagiso Rabada should be fined for showing passion for his craft... where's the disrespect in this? It's the political correct police gone completely bonkers.
 
Getting a ban for this is blatant discrimination. Any match referee giving this a demerit point has clearly never played cricket, especially as a fast bowler- and is out to stamp undue authority. Class it racism, or cricket elitism l; where poorer boards live by different rules
 
Kasigo Rabada will miss the fourth Test because of this celebration.

Funny how there is always these issues when the game involves teams like England and Australia. But I guess thats what u get if the ICC mainly consists of British members
 
In reply to @SuperSportTV
That's just nonsense!?! A Demerit point for that!?!? Even worse, Buttler continously directly cusses out Philander & gets the same sanction!?!? ICC are embarrassing.
 
In reply to @SuperSportTV
English cannot beat SA fair and Squate so they know that when they ban Rabada, they team mood is down.
 
Every reason to celebrate. I was waiting for "Kagiso to show up!" 👏👏👏. Keep going! 💪
 
Whats wrong with this celebration? Like, seriously
 
"DON'T BE TOO LOUD. PEOPLE AT THE OTHER SIDE OF THE WORLD WILL BE SLEEPING." - @ICC

*Translated* suspended for this? We are going crazy.

This celebration is equivelant to calling an opposing player a "fucking knobhead"? The ICC is so blatantly biased its making my head spin
 
Ridiculous to see Rabada has been handed a demerit point for this. Could possibly miss the next game all becuase he showed emotion and passion. Next Test is going to poorer without him - not fair on crowds also who want value for money! #SAvENG #ICC #Rabada
 
WTF is wrong with this celebration 🤷‍♂️
 
Harsh to be banned for this!
 
In reply to @SoulCart
@SoulCart what's wrong with this? Didn't get in anybody's face
 
In reply to @SuperSportTV
he is going to pop a vein one day
 
In reply to @SuperSportTV
It looks more like Ramada has taken the focus away from the incident for the team. The loss of England's two pace bowlers leaves me with a sense that this is only to even up England in final test because you need a four seam attack at Wanderers.
 
In reply to @SuperSportTV
Jos Butler got a slap on the wrist....his language could've also 'provoked an aggression from the batter".
 
In reply to @SuperSportTV
Not the first time. To much cropped up frustration from a untreated inferiority complex, withering opposition and a lacklustre performance.
 
In reply to @SuperSportTV
I don’t see what he did wrong there. He wasn’t in Roots face or offensive, he was just celebrating. Unless he said something which I haven’t heard about.
 
How did he get a demerit point for this?
 
Did he say anything else to Root? Can’t see why he’d be punished for this.
 
I'm goinf6to share this video for the rest of the month
 
Highlight of a dull Test was the ball bowled to take Joe Root’s wicket & then the raw emotion from @KagisoRabada25 but it seems the @ICC would prefer dull & boring? If he had sworn like trooper @josbuttler one could understand, but I guess @ECB_cricket are relieved #Rabada banned
 
A demerit and 1 match ban for this? @ICC is making cricket a joke 😂
 
 
 
In reply to @SuperSportTV
Maybe the real story comes out in Canada's retirement or Robot's book.
 
 
In reply to @SuperSportTV
And how exactly should the celebration be like?..
 
In reply to @SuperSportTV
'You can take my money and celebration but you will never take my freedom'.Some things have not changed. So ridiculous
 
 
In reply to @SuperSportTV
I challenge the Proteas to do the same with the rest of the wickets they take. That might be a while.
 
In reply to @SuperSportTV
This is nonsense
 
In reply to @SuperSportTV
WTF REALLY For Celebrating
 
In reply to @SuperSportTV
Come on ICC you killing the game of cricket
 
When you realize pay day is a week away.
 
Spectacular reaction of Rabada on getting Joe Root out today, the first day of the third Test .#SAvENG
 
ICC 🤦🏽‍♂️🤷🏾‍♂️
 
Getting a demerit point for this???
 
 
Banned for showing passion #rabada
Funny how the ICC operates
 
 
Honestly dont understand this decision!!! @KagisoRabada25 keep up the passion!
 
 
 
This page is learning something from bcci
 
Banned just for celebrating!!!🚮
 
 
In reply to @ICC
@ICC How is this banned, but Buttler, abusive behaviour doesn't get a severe punishment? 😕🙄🤔 #SAvENG #sscricket
 
Am I missing something? He’s banned for celebrating? 😳
 
The patrons are making cricket look like pussies game.
 
In reply to @ICC
@ICC cares so much about Rabada.. rested him when they realised his blood pressure was shooting up #SAvENG
 
A celebration earned him a demerit 😳 this is WILD
 
 
 
Banning @KagisoRabada25 for celebrating his wicket is a very nonsensical decision!!! The man did nothing wrong.
 
The penalty is quite harsh! Stupid actually. Wondering if this has anything to do with a talented dark skinned South African man getting an English white skinned man out @ICC
