IND vs SA: Kagiso Rabada is the main bowler of South Africa but he had a very poor start in the first match of the three-match Test series against India. On the wicket helping the bowlers, where his partner Lungi Ngidi was taking wickets one after the other, Rabada did not take a single wicket on the first day. Rabada had also appeared troubled by this on the field. However, the very next day he returned with a bang and sent three batsmen of Team India to the pavilion. How did this happen? Dean Elgar told its full story after the victory in the second test match.
Dean Elgar said, ‘I went to Rabada. I told him that you are a very respectable cricketer in our group. But at the moment I don’t think you are treating yourself well.

Elgar said, ‘I know Rabada’s abilities. When he is in his rhythm, there can be no better bowler than him. I talked to him for a long time that day. This conversation went well. He took care of those things and also considered them in the night. After that when he came to bowl the next day, he changed the whole scenario of the match.
