Pathetic decision from the ICC. Rabada bowled England's best batsman on a flat pitch with an old ball after being dropped from opening the bowling and missing out on the new ball and he celebrates in a way fast bowlers tend to do when they bowl a top batsman.
In reply to @SuperSportTV
The celebration was unEuropean. He deserves it.

I see nothing wrong here... The was no intimidation on the Batsman, This is what they do once a black child has bright future in their so called sport.... Look at Rugby Where is Aphiwe Dyantyi.
In reply to @SuperSportTV
Buttler received the same sanctions after swearing and verbally abusing Philander in the last test, yet he is still playing this test. Can someone explain why Buttler is allowed to play and not Rabada?
This decision is a whole entire joke, first of all. But also annoying how they announce this MID-TEST? Surely wait until the end so as not to affect the current mental state? Absolutely pathetic.

WTF is wrong with celebrating a wicket? pic.twitter.com/8kngNhu3cA
Play with passion, but not too much because you might just offend the privileged ones.
In reply to @SuperSportTV
Come on. We really needed that wicket. He was amped up to get it. It was a brilliant ball. He celebrated 🙆🏽‍♂️ Keep going @KagisoRabada25 ✊🏽
In reply to @SuperSportTV
Okay so don’t celebrate wickets anymore got it
Righto... who we going to fight on this ridiculous call?
In reply to @SuperSportTV
Cricket has really stupid rules. So, one cant show any emotion? That's why we prefer soccer.
In reply to @SuperSportTV
To be Black its a sin truly speaking
I don't know what's more shocking, that Rabada got fined or Root's technique around off stump this whole series...
Lol Buttler verbally abused Philander and gets to play, yet Rabada gets banned from playing after shouting with enthusiasm getting a wicket 😁🙄 haha @ICC are a joke #ENGvSA
Buttler literally swore to Philander in his face... Rabada just celebrated a wicket? What am I missing here?
In reply to @SuperSportTV
His celebration is too African. Like African hairstyles in model c schools. Rabada needs to go for CELEBRATION MANAGEMENT therapy. He needs a dash of British etiquette to save his salary and play subsequent matches next time. Black man will still be a loser even when he wins
This is why Rabada got banned.

You can't make this up. What a great way to ruin a series. Just hope Root is ok?

In reply to @SuperSportTV
Yet buttler wasn't banned for insulting philander
Great to see that swearing directly at a player and celebrating a wicket constitutes the same punishment according to @ICC 🤦🏽‍♂️ What times to be alive. Focussed on the wrong things 🤷🏾‍♂️
I am really battling to see the problem with this @ICC - what am I missing here?
In reply to @SuperSportTV
Don't see anything wrong.... What Nonsense! pic.twitter.com/103GCUO2qf
andrè nel woulda never gotten paid if he played today.
This is EXACTLY the kinda skill, passion and entertainment that cricket lovers WANT to see. Ridiculous decision by the @ICC.
Absolute BS of a ruling!
In reply to @SuperSportTV
Wait, what did he do? Am I missing something?
Utter bullshit! Love this guy’s passion .... fast bowler must be like this! Cricket must stop suck the English’s balls!
Dale Steyn has done worse, ICC needs to get a grip, that's a genuine display of passion.
In reply to @SuperSportTV
Is this a joke? Do the ICC want people to play this game? How the hell is this an infringement? He's excited, he just bowled one of their best players, he is not directing any abuse at anyone. FFS!!!
In reply to @SuperSportTV
I wonder what would have happened if he wasn't black 🤷 pic.twitter.com/MzPhllQOlH
In reply to @SuperSportTV
Yet Jos Butler got a slap on the wrist for his action last match, this is BS @ICC BS!
In reply to @SuperSportTV
How to kill a sport: remove all emotion from it, and while at it do not embrace competitive spirit.
In reply to @SuperSportTV
What is wrong with the celebration? Can anyone school me on how to celebrate in a cricket match?
I clearly don't understand sport at all. What?
Fuck you @ICC . Racist cowards
Smh. This is BS...but at the same time, its the 2nd time he has been banned, he should be aware of the ICC's nonsense rules and follow them to the letter (unfortunately)
What am I missing here? I see nothing wrong. 🧐
So you can chirp but this is punishable. Okay ICC, that's mighty fine.
Any Cricket boffins care to explain why this is frowned upon, punished, and fined?
In reply to @SuperSportTV
Bullshit! The problem here is Joe Root, should have walked away after he's wicket was smashed, but no. . .instead he stood his ground and watched Rabada showing passion.
In reply to @SuperSportTV
I see nothing wrong with pure sporting emotion! The Wanderers is gonna miss you @KagisoRabada25
In reply to @SuperSportTV
What a delivery from Rabada! Top of off stump gone, every fast bowlers dream🔥😍
I'm sorry but @ICC could you please fuck off...

Rabada gets banned for celebrating the best ball of the test match, dismissing the best batsman of the series?

This is passion. This is why we love sports, lukewarm and lackluster attitudes aren’t for top stages of world sports
Absolutely pathetic. And people worried that Test cricket is dying. They wonder why
What! why was Root still standing there anyway.😅
Considering what Butler was sanctioned in the previous game - its laughable that this is actually the case.

Can we fetch @AdvDali_Mpofu and appeal this ICC decision again please.

This is ridiculous 🤷🏾‍♂️
Crickets become so soft 😅 this is such a joke from the ICC
Garbage. Absolute garbage.
R the ICC mad or stupid
Fine for Rabada being happy taking a wicket
Politics really stupid people being something they cannot be
When he gets a wicket must he shake Root's hand and say "jolly good show" or what??
In reply to @SuperSportTV
There was nithing wrong with that celebration. ICC is crazy
In reply to @SuperSportTV
Look I don’t want to take away his natural response and exhubrance but this seems a little over the top.
So we’re punishing passion now? Ridiculous.
In reply to @SuperSportTV
The ICC is behaving like Pitso Mosimane!!!
In reply to @SuperSportTV
So let’s remove passion from the players and expect the fans to still get excited about things... ICC has always been a joke.
So @josbuttler still allowed to play after that and KG misses a test for passion. Interesting
In reply to @SuperSportTV
What's wrong there ? Make me understand cricket rules
In reply to @SuperSportTV
What kind of nosense is this... C'mon kanti a man express his emotions
In reply to @SuperSportTV
Disgusting decision ICC.. we need more characters like Rabada in modern day tests.. so guys like Buttler get away after speaking such disgusting.. fair play icc 🤦👏
Bruh, so now you can't even celebrate taking a wicket, especially one we needed so badly? If I was there, I'd have rested my nuts on Root's head man, this is mild. Joke organization I swear.
In reply to @SuperSportTV
Make it make sense
How is this even possible? He didn't swear at anyone,heck he didn't even swear. The scream wasn't directed at the batsman. What about this was against the code of conduct? How is calling someone a fucking knob head directly to them deemed the same level of offence ? @ICC @BCCI
For celebrating? Have they seen PSL games? This is garbage
In reply to @SuperSportTV
It was a savage ball by Rabada to dismiss Root and followed by a savage celebration according to the owners of the game...how dare he 😃 #SAvENG #sscricket pic.twitter.com/EGU3AILiWq
the nonsense that we are subjected to, he didn't swear or make any funny gesture , masimba Odwa la
Come on please. ICC want a silent disco mos
In reply to @SuperSportTV
Previous test match between rsa vs England i think him joe root was harsh towards philander yet he was never suspended stupid icc 💔😭😥
In reply to @SuperSportTV
Can you explain to us if you see anything wrong here?
In reply to @SuperSportTV
are worried about test cricket dying and are even considering slashing the 5th day to make it more interesting, so tell me why they are doing their best to remove all emotion and excitement from the game? Absolute shambles
In reply to @SuperSportTV
In reply to @SuperSportTV
His black, that’s why.
In reply to @SuperSportTV
It's a savage sport. There's not a single Saint on that pitch, all pricks. Rabada is banned because he's black.
In reply to @SuperSportTV
- making test series boring as b@tsh!t again. Not to worry, #cricket fans will stick to #IPL2020
This is so mild man what the hell???
Huuuu. Tankie hake tlhaloganye nix mo
I dont get it. What did he do that is so wrong? The man is just excited he got the wicket mos
Honestly fucking pathetic!! You can swear and chirp at batsman but don't celebrate a wicket... Fucking joke actually!! Get a grip ICC
In reply to @SuperSportTV
That video is a bad angle to show how he shouted in his face it doesn’t accurately show his misbehavior
In reply to @SuperSportTV
Wtf he did nothing wrong. Racist!!
In reply to @SuperSportTV
and Butler gets nothing. Swearing is cool, shouting at the ground not cool 😂😂. Proteas must stand in solidarity with Rababa just like the Boks did for Bakkies in '09 Lions tour! There is a problem with the Aus, Eng and Indian boards dominating world cricket! #Rabada
In reply to @SuperSportTV
For what!? Showing passion? @ICC are disgusting
In reply to @SuperSportTV
I’m telling you that this Cricket is one of the Cruel Sport around...
In reply to @SuperSportTV
What is actually wrong here🤔🤔 I thought I knew Cricket
Where’s that video were the English wicket keeper was swearing at Vernon Philander and nothing Happened?
