Kagiso Rabada Returns to South Africa’s Cricket Team

South African’s that have waited patiently for Kagiso Rabada to return haven’t the need to worry any longer. Announcements were issued that Kagiso Rabada is returning to South Africa’s Cricket Squad, which follows after missing multiple practices & matches. Rabada sustained an unexpected groin injury, forcing coaching personnel to sideline the prominent athlete until medical personnel cleared him for competition. Kagiso couldn’t heal under normal circumstances, with South Africa’s Cricket Team forcing the athlete into isolation until his groin injury had haled. Severe measures were enforced because South Africa is sustaining a prominent outbreak of Covid Strain VUI-2020/21. After healing & testing negative for the virus, medical personnel cleared Rabada for competition.

Kagiso Rabada couldn’t have returned at a better time, with South Africa slated to compete in their New Year’s Eve test series. Prominent athletes once thought not available have returned days before that event is slated to unfold. Kagiso Rabada marks the final piece to the puzzle, with the remaining cricketers competing including:

  • Lungi Ngidi.
  • Anrich Nortje.
  • Wiaan Mulder.
  • Lutho Sipamla.
  • Glenton Stuurnmaan.
  • Dwaine Pretorious.
  • Miguel Pretorious.

Glenton Stuurnmaan & Dwaine Pretorious are expected to become dominating forces for South Africa. It’ll mark the debut performance for Glenton Stuurnmaan, with Dwaine Pretorious holding prominence throughout this organization. He’d been sidelined after sustaining a hamstring injury against England in November 2020. It took almost six weeks for Dwaine to heal & return to contention.

There are concerns regarding Kagiso Rabada, who hasn’t competed in a “Red-Ball Match” since January 2020. Twelve months without sustaining a match in this format could work against Rabada’s favour. Regardless, he’ll look to perform after his last series saw points demerited from South Africa after Kagiso broke regulations. Depending on the performance displayed by Kagiso, he’ll likely be contracted for the upcoming series against Pakistan. No official details have been issued to date.
