Former cricketers lash out at ICC for banning Kagiso Rabada over aggressive celebration

Former cricketers have lashed out at International Cricket Council for banning South African pacer Kagiso Rabada for the Johannesburg Test. The pacer was sanctioned for his aggressive celebration following the dismissal of Joe Root on the first day of the Port Elizabeth Test. Rabada was found guilty of a level one offence. He was fined 15 percent of his match fee and earned one demerit point, taking his total number of active points to four. He has accumulated eight in the course of his career, but four of those have now elapsed.

Rabada castled Root with a beauty and was ecstatic. He let out a roar right in front of the batsman and that celebration was deemed as overaggressive. The on-field umpires deemed that inappropriate on the grounds of “using language, actions or gestures which disparage or which could provoke an aggressive reaction from a batter upon his or her dismissal during an international match” as per the ICC code of conduct.However, former cricketers weren’t happy with the call. They felt it was harsh as Rabada was letting out his emotion and it’s completely normal for anyone to let out his emotions and show some aggression if it’s within the laws. The fast bowler did not utter anything to Root either. Check out what some of the cricketers have to say about the decision made by ICC on Kagiso Rabada.
