Watch: Kagiso Rabada’s 200th Test wicket comes in comical fashion after wild tailender swipe

Rabada 200th Test wicket
by Wisden Staff 1 minute read

Watch: Kagiso Rabada registered his 200th Test wicket on Day 3 of the ongoing first Test against Pakistan in Karachi, thereby becoming the eighth South African bowler to the mark.

Rabada uprooted Hasan Ali’s middle-stump, as the Pakistan No. 9 completely missed a good-length delivery angling into him during an attempted wild heave. It was Rabada’s third wicket of the innings, after he had removed openers Imran Butt and Abid Ali late on Day 1.

Rabada achieved the milestone in his 44th Test, thereby becoming the third-fastest South African to the mark after Dale Steyn (39) and Allan Donald (42).
