Mike Hutchings / Reuters Cricket - South Africa vs Australia - Second Test - St George's Park, Port Elizabeth - March 11, 2018.
Port Elizabeth: South African fast bowler Kagiso Rabada was Monday banned for the two remaining Tests against Australia - and admitted that he would have to change how he celebrates wickets.
South Africa made a bit of a heavy work of reaching their modest target of 101, before captain Faf du Plessis (2) and Theunis de Bruyn (11) guided them to 102 for four.
Kagiso Rabada regained his top spot among bowlers crossing the coveted 900-point mark in ratings even as Indian off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin climbed up a couple of notches to be placed fourth in the ICC Test Player Rankings, released yesterday.
The first incident saw the 22-year-old make shoulder-to-shoulder contact with Australia skipper Steve Smith, while the second was for his celebration after dismissing opening batsman and vice-captain David Warner. Cricket South Africa (CSA) immediately announced it was seeking legal opinion.
"I think we're going on the sensitive side with everything at the moment".
The Australia all-rounder was fined 20% of his match fee and handed one demerit point for a level one offence of "using language or gesture that is obscene, offensive or insulting".
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.

Hillary Clinton Says 'Follow the Money,' Good Advice?
She won places that optimistic, which is, you know, better than all those places that have been struggling for decades. Her comments were dragged on Monday's Fox and Friends where Clinton was accused of "trash [ing] America's heartland".
Syrian army gains ground in intensified Ghouta assault
Government troops and allied militia have recaptured half of the besieged region in a blistering assault launched on Feb 18. That has in effect cut the large towns of Harasta and Douma off from each other and the rest of the enclave, it added.
Cape Town - I think we can safely call it "official" ... cricket is now a full subscriber to the soulless world some would wish us to inhabit, where stiff political correctness, pious indignation and insipid self-righteousness just about eclipse excellence in the middle.
Du Plessis argued Test cricket is becoming too sanitised.
In fact, Australia's main chance of appearing marginally competitive in this four-match test series would seem to be finding some way of playing matches that don't include Rabada or AB de Villiers. They said I've been bowling the whole day and now I've come to bat.
He was also charged separately for a Level 1 offence for giving a sendoff to Warner in the second innings, and he accepted that charge. I felt really good in this Test match. There are two matches are still in hand and to win the series both teams will try with their best. "I just like to bowl wherever the team requires me to and set my own aspirations aside".
In an increasingly acrimonious series during which Warner, Australia spinner Nathan Lyon and South Africa wicketkeeper Quinton de Kock have also been punished by the ICC, Mitchell Marsh was added to that list on Monday.
"If I do get banned I will have to see it as a big learning curve and not repeat the same mistake because I've repeated the same mistake in the eyes of the umpires. If I did it deliberately then I wouldn't have contested".
The match figures of 11/150 are the second best by a South African bowler against Australia.
