Following a disappointing performance against Pakistan, South Africa fast bowler Kagiso Rabada struck for his side with the very first ball of a World Cup match against Sri Lanka yesterday. The 24-year-old bowled a brilliant length delivery which surprised Sri Lanka skipper Dimuth Karunaratne, who could only manage to balloon a simple catch to Faf du Plessis at second slip. There were a lot of expectations on Rabada ahead of the tournament, however, the seamer has not been able to live up to the billing. The first ball wicket did really pump him up though. It was a perfect start to the innings for the Proteas, who had a disappointing run in the ongoing tournament so far and are already out of the race for a place in the semifinals.
