    Kagiso Rabada fined and sanctioned by ICC, not a word against Virat Kohli - Double standards?

    South Africa paceman has been fined 15 per cent of his match fee and handed one demerit point for conduct during fifth ODI against India.

    Kagiso Rabada has been fined 15 per cent of his match fee and received one demerit point after being found guilty of a Level 1 breach of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel during Tuesday’s ODI against India in Port Elizabeth.

    The South African fast bowler now has five demerit points on his disciplinary record after receiving three demerit points against Sri Lanka in a One-Day International on 8 February 2017 and one demerit point during the Lord’s Test against England on 7 July 2017.

    Rabada was subsequently suspended from the Trent Bridge Test against England after his accumulated demerit points reached four following the Lord’s breach.

    If Rabada reaches the next threshold of eight or more demerit points within a 24-month period, he will be suspended again from either two Tests; one Test and two ODIs/T20Is; or four ODIs/T20Is, whichever comes first for the player.

    Tuesday’s incident happened in the eighth over of India’s innings when Rabada, after dismissing Shikhar Dhawan, waved at the departing batsman and also made a comment which could have resulted in a reaction from the batsman.

    As such, he was charged by the on-field umpires Ian Gould and Shaun George, third umpire Aleem Dar and fourth umpire Bongani Jele under article 2.1.7, which relates to “using language, actions or gestures which disparage or which could provoke an aggressive reaction from a batsman upon his/her dismissal during an International Match”.

    After the match, Rabada admitted the offence and accepted the sanction proposed by Andy Pycroft of the Emirates Elite Panel of ICC Match Referees and, as such, there was no need for a formal hearing.

    NOTES TO EDITORS

    Demerit Points to remain on a Player or Player Support Personnel’s disciplinary record for a period of twenty-four (24) months from their imposition following which they will be expunged

    Level 1 breaches carry a minimum penalty of an official reprimand, a maximum penalty of 50 per cent of a player’s match fee, and one or two demerit points.

    -----------

    Meanwhile, the Indian team CAPTAIN Virat Kohli mouths obscenities aimed at just about every opposition players' mothers and sisters on a consistent basis and nobody bats an eye. What a joke of an administration.

    Remember ishant getting fined for giving a send off to symonds after dismissing him whereas symonds got Scott free. Rules are clear, bowlers can't gesture the batsman to pavilion after dismissing them.

    I'm pretty sure that a team captain behaving like a petulant child abusing opposition players after the fall of each and every wicket should be a much more serious transgression tbh..

    I was watching the highlights and was really surprised by the indian captains reaction at the fall of every wicket. He was clearly shouting things at the opposition batsmen most of the time, which I thought was rather unbecoming of an international cricket captain and am surprised he hasnt been spoken to or sanctioned.

    Celebrating themselves using any kind of knowledge or gestures or dance movements are different from celebrating on the face of dismissed batsmen using unnecessary/ugly gestures. The later may provoke batsmen to respond in more violent manner and former doesn’t make any difference as it is quite common for the opposition to celebrate after every wicket. Believe ICC is wise enough to see the things properly and equipped better to handle the cases as per the rules and does its job better than the random armchair critic..

    But he seems to get the team performing, one thing i noticed other than his really bad team selection during SA tests is his antics and general demeanor means he does not let matches to meander along the way dhoni did away from home and for whatever reason it works, players seem to give that extra 10% for kohli that one rarely saw under dhoni outside india.

    He let SA reach 286 from 12/3 in the first Test.

    Anyway, the major reason for the ODI victory are the Spinners who were miles ahead of whatever SA offered. The one match they didn't work, Kohli went clueless.

    Not true!! did the same few months back against SL. Not sure why people are defending him for his nonsense on the field, just because he is a great batsmen and scores most of the times for the team he gets a pass to do whatever he wants on the field? It really looks very immature for a Ind team captain to be jumping, doing fist pumps and bad mouthing for every fall of wicket.

    He isn't there to show off his maturity. He's there to motivate the team and in order to do that he'll do everything that he seems necessary. As long as his team is winning and he's performing, I don't think he should be criticised for such petty issues.


    Not everyone is like Dhoni or Tendulkar as a captain. Every player has his own personality and methods to motivate the team. Sure, as far as player selection is concerned, Kohli has made some dumb moves. But his onfield captaincy has been extremely good.

    Kohli is venting out his aggression generally. It may be bad. But that is not specifically targeting anybody. Meanwhile Rabada has been very childish the whole series for no reason. He is inface against the departing batsman which is very cowardly. I have seen Haasan Ali behaving like Kohli which i don't think is necessarily bad.

    No one is saying that he should stand on a side keeping finger on his lips. There is a difference in showing aggression and making yourself look stupid by overdoing it.

    So as long as team wins he can next take his shirt off wave it in front of batsmen and do some push ups and show his muscles(he is very close to doing this)

    he can never come close to dhoni, dhoni knows he is stupid that's why he just gives a smile to all his doings on the field. His on field captaincy is "Nothing" 30 runs partnership and he takes the slip out. as someone mentioned above when it was raining 6s and 4 s in the 4th odi he looked clueless.

    Really love watching his batting and his brain which works like a computer when he bats but he loses it when he is on field.

    His reactions r quite normal. If u look at the onfield behaviour of some top class sportsman like Djokovic or And Murray u'll see that they r constantly shouting or doing silly things on the court. Is their actions abnormal. Nope, absolutely not.


    That's their personality. But Federer is completely the opposite. Just because fed is a quite sort of person doesn't necessarily mean he's more mature or intelligent than what Murray or Djokovic is.

    The Aussies and Proteas have been getting away with these things in the 90's, early to middle 2000's when the BCCI didn't have enough financial muscle. It is good that they are now at the receiving end of the stick.

    2.1.4 Using language or a gesture that is obscene, offensive or insulting during an International
    Match.
    NOTE: Article 2.1.4 includes: (a) excessively audible or repetitious swearing; and (b) obscene gestures
    which are not directed at another person, such as swearing in frustration at one’s own poor play or fortune.
    Now tell me how does abusing every opposition player after they get out isn't against this rule? And this is not even direct abuse, when you factor in that since Kohli's directly gesturing at the players after they get out.. should warrant an immediate action.

    It's a clear double standard and I'm happy about it.

    The people running ICC in the past were supportive of few teams and we had to suffer it.

    Now we have the money and they have to kow-tow to us. I am losing no sleep that they have to grin and bear it when Kohli sends them off, it's fun to see when they have to issue grovelling apologies for their usual media games (like Brad Hodge had to in order to keep his Gujarat Lions job).

    Also in the last match:

    2.1.5 Showing dissent at an Umpire’s decision during an International Match.
    NOTE: Article 2.1.5 includes: (a) excessive, obvious disappointment with an Umpire’s decision; (b) an
    obvious delay in resuming play or leaving the wicket; (c) shaking the head; (d) pointing or looking at the
    6
    inside edge when given out lbw; (e) pointing to the pad or rubbing the shoulder when caught behind; (f)
    snatching the cap from the Umpire; (g) requesting a referral to the TV Umpire (other than in the context of a
    legitimate request for a referral as may be permitted in such International Match); and (h) arguing or entering
    into a prolonged discussion with the Umpire about his/her decision.
    It shall not be a defence to any charge brought under this Article to show that the Umpire might have, or in
    fact did, get any decision wrong.
    Using language, actions or gestures which disparage or which could provoke an
    aggressive reaction from a batsman upon his/her dismissal during an International Match.
    NOTE: Article 2.1.7 includes any language, action or gesture used by a Player and directed towards a
    batsman upon his/her dismissal which has the potential to provoke an aggressive reaction from the
    dismissed batsman, whether or not any reaction results, or which could be considered to disparage or
    demean the dismissed batsman, regardless of whether the batsman himself feels disparaged or demeaned.
    Without limitation, Article 2.1.7 includes: (a) excessive celebration directed at and in close proximity to the
    dismissed batsman; and (b) verbally abusing the dismissed batsman.
    Nothing in this Article 2.1.7 is, however, intended to stop Players celebrating, in an appropriate fashion, the
    dismissal of the opposing team’s batsman.
    It figures, Kohli has broken more clauses than Rabada did in the last match itself and yet Rabada is the one to be fined while Kohli goes scot free .

    You wanted me to quote the clauses, I did so. Anyone who understands basic English can interpret that rule, it isn't calculus.

    With that said, terrible to see Rabada (and Ngidi) play the victim card. Just get on with it: your punishment won't get better if some other guy is or is not punished as well.

    Thats fine. Its time for the Aussies and Proteas to feel it now.

    It doesn't matter what you and I interpret. The rules have to be interpreted by the authorized person who in this case is Boon. Everyone has the right to appeal against it, SA can do it. All we can do is speculate. You are speculating against India and an experienced match referee and i am speculating for India and giving benefit of doubt to the match referee. Not sure how that suddenly makes you right.

    Virat is a clown, absolutely no doubt about it. But to say he has never been punished is wrong. He has done it many times and has got into trouble too..

    Indians, Pakistanis, BD and SL have faced the discrimination a lot in the past. Indian players were actually way too subdued and looked like cowards a lot in the past. Atleast Pak players gave back in kind many times. So as far as this topic is concerned the whole of subcontinent has to unite against Aussies and SA and to some extent England and give them back in the same language they understand

    Anyway, the major reason for the ODI victory are the Spinners who were miles ahead of whatever SA offered. The one match they didn't work, Kohli went clueless.
    So the innings where bowlers messed up its his fault where the bowlers and rain screwed us its his fault but where bowlers perform he gets no credit, so very predictably biased of you. By the way i remember asking you once, which team do you support?

    You cant shut down guys like virat and ranveer singh.
    But he hasnt crossed the line set by ICC guidelines otherwise he would have been punished.
    Anyways it feels so nice to see others playing victim card gone are the days when ***** ruled cricket.

    I think somethings are made into a bigger issue than normal. Kohli celebrates and normally does not get into the face of the batsman. Yes he does jump around a lot and might throw some expletives but that is not directed at the batsman. Also the video posted on the other thread, the batsman had already left so I don't think that was directed towards him. People have to cool down a little bit, there have been such players in every sport in the past, it seems like subcontinent are not ready for Kohli sort of character yet. Ever watched John McEnroe playing tennis?

    But to the point of Rabada being fined, that's just stupid. I liked how charged up he is, ICC wants to just take the fun out of cricket.

    Seriously... they may as well make 22 robots play the game.. bringing game to disrepute? watching match fixers and spot fixers will result in more disillusionment in the game than watching pumped up players go at each others... If ICC Is serious about cleaning up the game then move to remove any ex-cons, spot fixers, fan bashers, child abusers, rape accusers, out of the game before they go after fine players having a go at each other.

    I agree with a few here. Cricket is a non contact sport. You want players to be a bit more expressive to get into the head of opposition. Sending off players should b integral part of cricket. I remember how Bravo sent Pollard off lol freaking hilarious. He showed him gesture of flight takeoff

    The only problem with your statement is that Kohli probably uses many more direct expletives that Rabada does. He gets away with it because those are in Hindi. See his reaction when Markram gets out in the 5th ODI. I don't mind it tbh, but I think we shouldn't have double standards.

    South Africa fast bowler Kagiso Rabada could miss the rest of the four-Test series against Australia after brushing Steve Smith's shoulder during a send-off when he dismissed the tourists' skipper in Port Elizabeth.

    Call it passion or petulance, the fiery Rabada could not control himself after removing Smith to claim the first of five wickets he snared on day one of the second Test.

    Rabada stormed down the pitch in Smith's direction after the LBW dismissal, screaming in his face while making physical contact. Smith's facial expression suggested he was far from pleased with the spray.

    Umpires made a beeline for South Africa captain Faf du Plessis after the incident, registering their disappointment.

    Rabada, who has been booked for two send-offs in the past nine months, already has five demerit points on his disciplinary record.

    Three more points will trigger an automatic two-Test suspension and he is expected to learn his fate on Saturday morning (South Africa time).

    The incident follows the spiteful first Test in Durban, which saw David Warner and Quinton de Kock engage in a heated verbal altercation.

    Warner was fined 75 per cent of his match fee and handed three demerit points after being slapped with a charge of "bringing the game into disrepute".

    Nathan Lyon was also charged with a level-one offence for his send-off of South Africa batsman AB de Villiers in Durban.

    Vernon Philander made light of Rabada's blow-up in Port Elizabeth, saying "I don't even recall there being a send-off".

    "We are probably allowed to celebrate," Philander said.

    "Sometimes there is a fine line whether to celebrate too hard. It's all up to the umpires and the ICC (International Cricket Council) match officials to make that call.

    "He would leave a massive hole, he's a big part of this bowling line up. Let's hope that's not the case."

    The ICC takes a dim view of any aggressive physical contact on the pitch, knowing it has the potential to result in serious fireworks.

    Rabada knows this as well as anybody.

    He was given three demerit points for "inappropriate and deliberate physical contact" in 2017, having brushed Niroshan Dickwella when the Sri Lankan was running between the wickets.

    Rabada's running battle with Australia continued when he was sent out as nightwatchman late in the day.

    Lyon, Smith and Josh Hazlewood all gave the fast bowler a vocal welcome, but he finished 17 not out.

    Smith made it clear last month that he was well aware of Rabada's disciplinary record, noting "it could perhaps be a plan to try and get him fired up" and "you never know what some guys do when they're fired up".

    Rabada has loads of attitude, it is better if he shows in on the field in his game and not off-it and certainly not to great players like Smith and Kohli and others. Another example of what happens when success goes to your head. This guy will be the cry baby when smashed. He might be talented but Ngidi's attitude is better compared to him right now, Ngidi would do well to not pick-up such bad habits from Rabada.
