South African coach Mark Boucher has showed serious ‘concerned’ over cricket’s disciplinary regulations, after the South African pacer Kagiso Rabada was handed a ban which means he will miss the final test match of the series against England.
The South African pacer was banned because of the way of celebrating the dismissal of England Captain Joe Root in the 3rd test match of the series. Rabada was found guilty of a level one offence. He was fined 15 percent of his match fee and earned one demerit point,
Mark Boucher in statement said, “I am concerned, to be honest. You don’t want to take all the aggression out of the game. You’ve got two countries playing against each other in a heated situation. Guys are trying really hard.”
He further said, “Sometimes the emotions overflow so the rules and regulations are a little disappointing but if you know the rules and regulations you’ve got to stick to them. KG (Rabada) knows what he can and cannot do and he may be pushed a little far.”
Mark Boucher also said that losing Rabada in the final test is a massive blow for the team. He said, “It is going to be tough but it is something we are going to have to address and get a very good balance.”
