When Kagiso Rabada bowled a gem of a delivery to get rid of Dawid Malan
Proteas' right-arm pacer Kagiso Rabada has been one of the crucial gears of the national cricket team. The 26-year-old has perfected the art of taking the attack to the batsmen by bowling at a sensational pace and bounce.
The right-arm pacer has also perfected the art of hitting the deck hard. His exceptional bowling rhythm makes it really challenging for the batsmen to take the attack to the cleaners. The South African literally knows how to keep the batsmen silent.
Moreover, he also loves to keep himself fit. We have seen pacers picking up injuries for bowling more overs during the passage of the play. Nonetheless, Kagiso is different from the rest. In an interview, he highlighted that he enjoys being fit as it assists to improve his self-confidence.
Overall, the right-arm pacer has bagged 284 wickets in 82 Test innings, 119 wickets in 75 ODIs, 31 wickets in 26 T20Is and 61 wickets in 35 IPL games. He has also been one of the important assets of the Delhi Capitals' bowling department.
It is worth mentioning here that he played a significant role in the team’s journey to the semifinals of the IPL 2019 season when he took 25 wickets to his name. He continued his rich vein of form in the subsequent season where he took 30 wickets and helped DC reach the maiden IPL final.

Kagiso Rabada is celebrating his birthday today as he turned 26. The right-arm fast bowler has enjoyed taking wickets in international and domestic cricket. His ability to take wickets in crunch situations and being a nightmare to most world-class batsmen is what makes him one of the best pacers in the world.
On his birthday, ESPNCricinfo took to their official Twitter handle and posted the best video clip of Rabada castling Malan's stumps. During the Test match between South Africa and England, Rabada delivered a peach of a delivery and made a mess of the English cricketer's stumps.
