New Delhi: The ongoing Australia-South Africa has seen the best and worst of Test cricket. But on day 2 of third Test at Adelaide, prodigious fast bowler Kagiso Rabada added his flair to the contest with a virtually unplayable delivery and a bit of sledging.
The 21-year-old produced a perfect yorker in the 90th over of the Australian innings, and uprooted the middle stump of Nic Maddinson. Rabada, an otherwise quiet character, enjoyed himself with a bit of sledging even as his team-mates found the proceeding entertaining with their youngest member taking on the Aussies.
Here's the video:

After Proteas skipper Faf du Plessis surprised Australia with an early declaration yesterday, the hosts responded in style with Usman Khawaja batting through the day. The opener first stitched a 137-runs stand with skipper Steven Smith, then followed it up a 99-runs stand with debutant Peter Handscomb to put the visitors under pressure.

Towards the close of day's play today, South Africans have wrested back some momentum, and their defining moment was that dismissal of another debutant Maddison.
