South Africa quick bowler Kagiso Rabada insisted Monday that the “bickering” has to cease because the Proteas look to bounce again from a dreadful begin to the T20 World Cup. South Africa slumped to a five-wicket loss to Australia of their Tremendous 12 opener on Saturday after making simply 118 of their 20 overs. The one crumb of consolation was that Tuesday’s opponents, defending champions West Indies, have been even worse. They have been bowled out for a dismal 55 by England and have been crushed by six wickets.

“We see (the batting) as a priority. The very last thing we have to do is preserve bickering on and on about it,” stated Rabada, whose 19 not out towards Australia was his crew’s second-highest behind Aiden Markram’s 40.

That was regardless of Rabada coming in at quantity 9.

One of many major speaking factors was the weird dismissal of Quinton de Kock.

The opener was bowled by Josh Hazlewood however solely after the ball bounced off him, looped up after which down onto the stumps because the left-hander watched helplessly.

De Kock was one in every of his crew’s first three wickets to fall with the rating on simply 23.

It was a disappointing exit for the 28-year-old who had scored 5 half-centuries in his final eight innings within the format.

“Quinton is a top-quality participant, and I assume it simply did not come off,” stated Rabada.


“That is simply how cricket goes. The batters know what they need to do. We all know what we’ve to do as a crew. Nobody is blaming anybody. However the worst factor you are able to do is simply harp on and on and on about it.

“Quinton is a large participant for us. He is completed extraordinarily effectively for South Africa ever since he began enjoying. He is a world-class participant, and he wants simply to go in and do his factor.”
