South Africa pace bowler Kagiso Rabada may only be 22, but he has already established himself as one of the most lethal bowlers in international cricket.

Rabada currently sits at the summit of the Test bowlers rankings after he took a total of five wickets in the first Test against India, which the Proteas won by 72 runs.

However, South Africa captain Faf du Plessis believes that Rabada will only get better as time goes on.

“He is an incredible athlete and I think that’s his strongest attribute,” Du Plessis was quoted as saying by Sport24. “He’s just such a strong bowler and he can bowl the whole day. He doesn’t get tired and that’s a great thing to have as a captain.

“I still believe that KG’s best is still to come. I think he’s learning a lot as a bowler and he’s a very young bowler still. With his body so strong and with a good head on his shoulders, always looking to improve, I think his best is yet to come.”

Rabada will be looking to continue his good run of form with the ball in the second Test against India, which gets underway on January 13 in Centurion.
