‘Cricket may be the greatest game in Kagiso’s eyes, but it’s still just a game’.
Many felt that the ban imposed on Kagiso Rabada was a litte harsh.
In reality, it goes beyond cricket.
Many of our youth in the ‘Zuma era’ have come to believe that it is acceptable to disrespect one’s opponents – put simply – disrespect others.
If that was allowed to continue in sport – it can destroy the game.
No one wants robots playing the game, no one wants passion subdued, and no one wants inspired performance supressed ………..
If boxers can slug it out for 15 rounds – then embrace each other in sportsmanship – so can cricketers .We want to see the game played in the right spirit – with skill, passion and respect for the opposition, the match officials and the laws.: Dave Richardson : ICC Chief Executive
Kagiso Rabada, at 22 years of age is a SA sporting revelation.
He can choose to argue relentlessly in front of a commission that he did not intentionally shoulder Steve Smith – but in reality he DISPLAYED DISRESPECT for the Aussie captain – whether one chooses to like Steve Smith or not .
When a batsman is out. That’s it. He’s out.
We all do many stupid things when we are 22 years young: Dale Steyn
Kagiso Rabada is an awesome guy – and a beacon of hope for our youth.
Let’s hope his learning curve is a learning for all our SA youth.
On and off the field of play, RESPECT counts big in the game of life.
