NZ vs RSA: Kagiso Rabada is the Player of the match

Kagiso Rabada has been outstanding throughout the match.

Following their lopsided first-test victory, New Zealand simply needed a draw in the second match to win their first test series against South Africa in the 17th attempt. They were outplayed with bat and ball after South African captain Dean Elgar comfortably won the toss and elected to bat first on day one.

Kagiso Rabada has been outstanding throughout the match and has been named Player of the Match for his contributions with both the ball and the bat.

Kagiso got a five-wicket haul in New Zealand’s first innings, followed by a crucial 47-run knock, and clinched the team’s triumph with three more wickets.

“It’s never easy playing against New Zealand. We knew what we had to do and I’m glad we got the job done,’ said Kagiso Rabada.
