Kagiso Rabada has been charged for a second alleged breach of cricket's code of conduct for his actions after dismissing Australia batsman David Warner in the second Test in Port Elizabeth on Sunday. Despite making it big and being highly influential with his bowling, the Proteas pacer's actions may see him out of the Test series against Australia.

Rabada has collected 11 wickets in the two innings he played in the 2nd Test against Australia at Port Elizebeth and has been the visitors' worst nightmare at St.George's Park. 

The International Cricket Council says it has charged the South Africa fast bowler with a level one offence for screaming in the face of Warner after bowling him at the start of Australia's second innings on the third day's play.

It's the second disciplinary charge for Rabada in the match after he was reported for a more serious level two offence for bumping into Australia captain Steve Smith in the first innings. That incident on its own has the potential to see Rabada banned for two Tests and miss the rest of the Australia series.

Rabada had a disciplinary hearing over the Smith shoulder bump after play on Sunday. The ICC is yet to release its decision on that charge.

Australia were scrambled out for 239 in the second innings of the Test and lead by 101 runs. This seems like a done deal for the hosts after losing the 1st Test at Durban.
