PORT ELIZABETH, Jan 21 (Agencies) | Publish Date: 1/21/2020 9:52:22 AM IST

South Africa paceman Kagiso Rabada says he was surprised to be sanctioned for his exuberant celebration of Joe Root’s dismissal in the third test against England but knows he cannot keep letting his team mates, and himself, down.

Rabada was handed a one-match ban by ICC, ruling him out of the last match of the four-test series, which starts in Johannesburg on Friday.

Rabada’s sanction related to an incident on the first day of the test last Thursday. “It was something I didn’t expect,” Rabada said on Tuesday.

“Whether it was the right thing to ban me or the wrong thing, the reality is that I’m banned. It cannot keep happening because I’m letting the team down and I’m letting myself down. That’s why it hurts so much but it gives me a chance to work on my game and a chance to have a bit of a rest.”
