Kagiso Rabada put South Africa in the lead by winning six wickets due to Rabada's skilful bowling, winning the series on the fourth day of the second test against Australia. He took six for 54 as Australia were bowled out for 239 in their second innings.

South Africa lost four wickets before Theunis de Bruyn hit the winning runs. AB de Villiers, whose 126 not out enabled South Africa to lead by 139 runs on the first innings, hit 28 off 26 balls before he was caught at short leg off Nathan Lyon with 20 runs still needed.

Rabada took the first three of the five Australian wickets that fell for the addition of 59 runs on Monday. He had match figures of 11 for 150. This is the fourth time in his 28-Test career that he has had ten or more wickets in a match.

Despite his victory, Rabada received a ban from the next two Tests of the series. Following a disciplinary hearing regarding a level two offence after bumping shoulders with Australian captain, Steve Harvey, on the first day – plus another level one offence earlier in the match – added to the preexisting demerit points he's already racked up, a two Test ban was definitely on the cards.
