- SA cricketer Kagiso Rabada recently became the 7th person to claim his 200th Test Wicket
- While it is an achievement on its own, Rabada is also the 4th youngest to do so
- Hassan Ali, unfortunately, helped Rabada achieve the feat after it was he who got dismissed by Rabada's hit
Kagiso Rabada is continuing to make strides in his career as a successful cricketer. The young man recently became the 7th South African bowler to reach this milestone. Not only that but Rabada is the 4th youngest to do so.
Hassan Ali, unfortunately, became the one to grant Rabada his 200th Test wicket win after he was the one who was dismissed by the achievement.
The young and exceptionally gifted 25-year-old Rabada is also the third-fastest to reach the mark coming after Dale Steyn in second place and Allan Donald in first. Seemingly cricket is in his destiny as he was born on the opening day of the rugby world cup in May 1995.
Meanwhile, locals have had this to say about his achievement:
"Congratulations on reaching 200 Test Wickets for South Africa Flag of South Africa @KagisoRabada25. 4th fastest to do so! Go for 200 more! #RABADA"
"Congratulations #Rabada , at just 25 if his fitness & bowling will work same, he'll finish with 500+ Thumbs up. @OfficialCSA"
"#Rabada is only 25 years of age and already has close to 200 test wickets. If he remains injury free he has a good chance of finishing as highest wicket taker for #SouthAfrica , he can also beat Anderson’s record of highest wickets by a fast bowler. @KagisoRabada25"
In other Briefly.co.za sports news, Bongani Zungu's market value is taking a big blow due to the fact that he is getting minimum game time with Scottish side Rangers FC. The young South African player is now worth an estimated R22million.
This is shockingly low considering the player was worth a whopping R65 million during his peak in 2018/2019. His low game time, which is an unfortunate part of Coach Steven Gerrard’s plan for his teams' success, has cost him gravely.
Since joining the Rangers on a loan term basis from SA team Mamelodi Sundowns, Zungu has played a collective of 138 minutes for the team and has appeared 9 times in the league all of which he was benched.
