New Delhi: Young South African speedster Kagiso Rabada has impressed many with string of outstanding performances in the on-going tour of India.
The 20-year-old has been playing a key role for South Africa since their arrival in India. The pacer has picked up 11 wickets in seven matches thus far on the tour.
He has a lot of variations up his sleeves and he is using them with good effect against Indian batsmen.
The speedster from Johannesburg, who claimed a maiden ODI hat-trick on his debut against Bangladesh, has bowled his heart out in the limited-overs formats against the Men in Blue. His ability to hold nerves in pressure situations makes him a standout bowler.
The bowler first hogged the limelight when he bowled a superb last over to arguably world's best finisher MS Dhoni, during the first ODI in Kanpur.
In the fifth and final ODI too, Rabada scalped four wickets to make sure that his side won the decider.
His qualities to stick to the basics and read batsman's mind make him a dangerous bowler.
As Rabada is all set to make his Test debut against India in the upcoming four-match series, it would be interesting to see whether he can carry his limited-overs form in the whites to make this tour a memorable one.
