Rabada and Morne Morkel will carry the fast-bowling mantle in the absence of Dale Steyn and Vernon Philander, which will be another opportunity to grow and expose the pace resources in the Proteas setup.
South Africa could add only 147 runs to their overnight score of 214 for 5 on Day three of the first Test against England at Lord's. After gaining crucial 97-run lead, England continued their strong hold in the Test by ending 3rd day of the match with 119 for 1 and leading by 214.

South Africa's ace fast bowler Kagiso Rabada has been suspended by International Cricket Council for one Test for the bowler was caught saying heated words to England batsmen on the second day of the first Test at Lord's.
In the process, Rabada got the fourth demerit point of the ICC's Code of Conduct. The fast bowler had three points for getting involved in a heated exchange with Sri Lanka's Niroshan Dickwella during an ODI game in early 2017.
After he used 'inappropriate language' for Ben Stokes after his dismissal, he earned the fourth demerit point and as per ICC ruled, it calls for a suspension of one game.
