Still plenty of needle in series with or without Rabada, says Elgar

South Africa bowler Vernon Philander lashes Australia captain Steve Smith in brutal Twitter rant

Rabada returned match figures of 11 for 150 at Port Elizabeth, an effort that was praised even by his opponents, but he stands to miss the final two Tests of the series, which is locked at 1-1, should his appeal fail.

South Africa fast bowler Rabada is appealing against a ban handed down for brushing the shoulder of Australia captain Steve Smith in the hosts' sixwicket victory in the second test in Port Elizabeth which levelled the fourmatch series at 1-1. At training during the week I practiced for about half an hour, like a side step coming down the wicket, and it was just weird that actually happened.

"As players we're just trying to isolate ourselves away from that situation".

"He has been at the front of a lot of attention recently, but he's got a lot of people behind him in the team that play really tough, hard cricket as well". KG is an extremely special cricketer, but we do know that there are rules for certain incidents and we as cricketers respect that. "They're going to come out and say something on the field", Elgar told reporters.

"Having him in the side is massive for us, massive for the game and massive for the format, because KG is such aspecial cricketer", Elgar said.

"I think it's a different style. but one thing I haven't seen throughout the tournament enough is yorkers", said Lee.

Homer Simpson pulled over by English police
Thames Valley Police team may have seen a few fake driver's licences in their time, but none quite like this, no doubt. An unidentified British driver tried passing off a fake license to police during a traffic stop last Sunday night.

While South Africa sweated on the availability of Rabada, Australia had concerns over their spearhead, Mitchell Starc, who did not bowl on Monday because of what was believed to be a calf strain. Smith's side want to find out more and will have a chance to do so when the four-Test series continues in Cape Town on Thursday.

"If he's good to go for the third Test it will be awesome for us and the game".

Australia opener Cameron Bancroft talked up the threat posed by Morkel and Olivier but suggested Australia were prepared for the prospect of Rabada playing at Newlands.

Seamer Duanne Olivier and bowling all-rounder Chris Morris have been added to the 17-man South Africa squad for the remaining two Tests of the four-match series against Australia.

"I take no pleasure in seeing a player suspended, particularly a young player of Kagiso's talent, but he has now breached the ICC code of conduct on a number of occasions". "I think all of their bowlers are unique in different ways", he said.
