There is no doubt that Kagiso Rabada is one of the best bowlers in the world at present. He has had great success in all formats of the game. He is the spearhead of South African bowling at present. Keeping that in mind, he can change any match on its head, with a brilliant spell of fast bowling.
That is something that every opposition that faces the South African team remembers. Undoubtedly, the pacer has left his mark on international cricket and the Indian Premier League too. He is the spearhead for the Delhi Capitals pace attack too and one of the reasons why they made it to the final last season.
Despite all the recent controversy surrounding the two-match ban that Kagiso Rabada got, he is still loved by the fans. He is one of the best in the world at what he does; foxing the batsmen with his brilliant pace and trickery. No one can argue about the fact that he is right up there and the fans really love him and appreciate his contribution to the game of cricket.
The Video That Was Shared By ESPN CricInfo On Kagiso Rabada’s Birthday
ESPN CricInfo decided to pay tribute to this world-class pacer by showcasing one of his deliveries of all time. This could indeed be tagged as his best in Test Cricket for sure. To add to that, he did not just get any batsman out with this ball. He got through the gates of one of England’s best in Dawid Malan.
The delivery was so good that it brought Malan to his knees and he had no answer at all. That is not something that you get to see too often. Even Alistair Cook was standing at the other end, admiring what he had seen.
Both are talented batsmen and if this is the case, then the bowler surely has to be really special. Indeed, Kagiso Rabada is and no fan would want to bet against that for sure!!
Below is the video of the dismissal that was shared on Twitter and went viral in no time; what a brilliant delivery to say the least-

“What a peach of a delivery,” as the late and great Richie Benaud would have said. This was just one of the best that he ever bowled. The fans would have loved reliving this beautiful memory. It was just the perfect yorker and it beat the batsman all ends up. There was nothing that Malan could do about it and he just quietly walked back to the pavilion, as the next batsman came out to meet his fate!!
Kagiso Rabada is one of the best in the world. Without a doubt, he will be the spearhead of the South African pace attack for the years to come. What a gem the cricketing world has found. We wish him a very Happy Birthday and all the best for the season ahead. He is a top player and the world of cricket appreciates this wonderful talent.
