Rabada refuses to get carried away after becoming top-ranked ODI bowler

Wilma Wheeler | 02 June, 2017, 02:39

Fast bowlers Kagiso Rabada and Wayne Parnell snared seven wickets as South Africa bowled England out for just 153 runs after a top-order collapse in their third and final one-day global on Monday. This is the reason AB de Villiers likes to chase. South Africa's opening partnership of Quinton de Kock and Hashim Amla strikes fear at the top of the order. It was a memorable match for Kohli as he slammed his 24th century, but India lost by three wickets.

However, there was disappointment for India in the bowlers chart as not a single cricketer from the country features in the top 10 list which is being headed by Kagiso Rabada of South Africa.

The Lords pitch provided some assistance to the South African bowlers, but the England batsmen failed to show any application as they provided catching practice to the South African cordon.

Wayne Parnell has taken 11 of the 19 Champions Trophy wickets that South Africa's current squad have all together.

Jonny Bairstow top-scored with 51 in an innings where the only other batsmen to make it to double figures were tailender Toby Roland-Jones, who made 37 not out on his ODI debut, and David Willey (26).

Both two teams England and South Africa are preparing for Champions Trophy. "I started off really well and four games later I had a decent game again", de Villiers said.

South Africa, Australia, India and New Zealand have all won this prestigious tournament in the past while last time's finalist England will be hoping to do one better in home conditions and with the confidence of the series win over South Africa. England, courtesy the series win, have achieved two points, but continues to remain fifth in the table.

Next ball, England's 20 for five became 20 for six when Adil Rashid, attempted a huge drive next ball even more recklessly, and edged to du Plessis for a golden duck.

With Champions Trophy round the corner, there's every opportunity for all the top five teams to push for an improvement in their rankings.

But he gave his wicket away when he charged at left-arm spinner Keshav Maharaj only to be stumped by de Kock.
