Faf wants the ICC's disciplinary system overhauled

South Africa cricket board has contested the charge levelled against Rabada for the physical contact with Smith.

The ICC also announced a 20 percent fine and one demerit point for Australia's Mitchell Marsh, who accepted a charge of using "obscene or offensive language" after being dismissed by Rabada on Monday.

Tim Paine showed great composure with the willow but finished 28 not out, running out of partners while attempting to build a more imposing target.

Faf du Plessis has questioned worldwide cricket's disciplinary approach, stunned that David Warner's staircase rampage and Kagiso Rabada's rowdy send-off could both be worth three demerit points.

He attended a disciplinary meeting convened by match referee Jeff Crowe on Sunday night after being charged with a level two offence following an incident in which his shoulder made contact with Australian captain Steve Smith on the first day.

The only sanction Kohli received was one demerit point and a 25% match-fee fine when he argued with the umpire about the ball being wet in the Centurion Test.

Rabada's captain, Faf du Plessis certainly doesn't want his spearhead to change his spots, but does believe he may "have to get a bit smarter".

AUSTRALIA'S constant chirping has backfired badly in Port Elizabeth, according to former Test spinner Gavin Robertson.

Aiden Markram had an escape in the second over of South Africa's chase.

"It's bittersweet. I would've loved to have been playing the next game", said the 22-year-old.

Kagiso Rabada ran havoc yet again as Australia perished after a not so worthy lead of 100 on day 4 at Port Elizabeth.

Philander, meanwhile, has been his accurate, frugal self, but has badly lacked penetration, taking just five wickets at a lofty strike rate of 92, which compares unfavourably to those of Rabada (32), Mitchell Starc (39), Josh Hazlewood (55) and Pat Cummins (55).

South Africa pace bowler Kagiso Rabada has admitted that he has to scale back his aggression going forward as it is "letting the team down" and "myself down". Through the majesty of AB de Villiers, South Africa did that easily and levelled the series 1-1. South Africa began the day clearly in the stronger position, but Australia were 41 runs ahead and still had five wickets in hand.

But his 11 wickets for 150 runs will likely be somewhat overshadowed if, as expected, he receives a two-match suspension after amassing a whopping three more demerit points in an incident likely to be termed "Shouldergate" by people who like to add the suffix "-gate" to the end of words that appear in controversial incidents. I don't think we've got any indiscretions as far as I know.

But SA are considering making a last-gasp legal attempt to try to keep the fast bowler in their XI for the third Test at Newlands in Cape Town, starting on March 22.
