Rabada recalls dream Bangladesh tour
With the two-match Test series between South Africa and Bangladesh begins on Thursday, Proteas’ sensation Kagiso Rabada speaks ahead of the series.
The right-arm fast bowler went back to 2015 Bangladesh tour when he took a hat-trick on his ODI debut. He became the second man to take a hat-trick on ODI debut.
He bowled Tamim Iqbal, had Litton Das caught and trapped Mahmudullah Riyad lbw in the first ODI to create a memorable moment. He went on to take six wickets in that match which was won by the Proteas.
“I had a good experience playing there; I guess it was a dream start to international cricket,” Rabada said after South African squad arrived Potchefstroom to play the first Test.
“That tour [of Bangladesh] gave me the taste of Asian conditions, and it helped.”
South Africa are set to start newly under new head coach Otis Gibson, the former West Indian pacer and ex-England bowling coach. Proteas are confident to defeat Tigers under him.
“It [the loss in England] is part of the game, but we are starting afresh under a new coach. It is not a big problem because we know how to win,” Rabada added.
