Bio

Kagiso Rabada made his Proteas debut in a T20I against Australia in Adelaide at just 19.

The fast bowler made his first class debut in March 2014 and he showed selectors enough form in that and his T20I's  to convince them to give him a Test debut in 2015.

Rabada was one of the stars of the South Africa team who won their maiden ICC Under-19 Cricket World Cup in 2014, claiming 6-25 in the semi-final against Australia in a man-of-the-match performance.

Rabada took a seven-wicket haul in the first-innings against England at Centurion in just his fifth Test.
