KAGISO RABADA (SA)
151 wickets in 32 Tests with a best of 7/112
Kagiso Rabada had a blast on his international debut for South Africa, as he picked 6/16 against Bangladesh in his first ODI including a hat-trick on debut. The 23-year-old fast bowler has since then become the premier bowler of South Africa picking 86 ODI wickets and 151 Test wickets.
Rabada has been particularly devastating in Test cricket picking 9 fifers and four 10-fers in his short career thus far. Rabada is a brilliant combination of stamina, speed, and aggression. South Africa knows Rabada’s importance and has already started managing him injury and match wise. Rabada has already gained no.1 ranking in both ICC Test and ODI bowlers rankings in his young career.
Given that he has become the youngest bowler ever to get to the 150 Test wickets mark, Rabada has a bright future ahead of him and with veteran Dale Steyn returning to cricket after a long layoff, the pressure and load of bowling will lessen on Rabada and he can stay injury free, to terrorize batsmen in coming time.
