He Is Happy That His Run Of Bad Luck Stopped 

Kagiso Rabada has found a reason to celebrate after taking a five-wicket in 33 innings and finally breaking the jinx. This is the first win since March 2018, where he was at the top of the ICC Test Bowlers ranking list. During this Test against Australia, he won an appeal over an alleged shoulder contact with Australian captain Steve Smith. Kagiso Rabada Five-Wicket hauls against the windies have made him find his way back at the top.

Kagiso Rabada is probably the most exciting talent to emerge from South Africa in the post-number-one Test ranking era. Even before he had turned 21, he had already established himself as a potential leader of the attack.  

The South African fast bowler ripped through the West Indies batting line-up in their second innings of the first Test. He finished the game within three days and helped the Proteas take an impregnable lead in the 2-Test series with an innings and 63-run win. The current game with the West Indies, where he got a 5/34 in 20 overs in the second innings, played a massive role in the game getting wrapped up in an extended third morning where the Windies were bowled out for 162 after starting the day on 82/4. 

Kagiso Rabada, who removed openers Kraigg Braithwaite, and Kieron Powell, collected the scalps of Jermaine Blackwood, Joshua Da Silva, and Rahkeem Cornwall to acquire his tenth five-wicket haul in Test cricket

After the game against the West Indies was over, Kagiso Rabada, a Five-wicket winner, said that to measure the highest accolades in cricket, one is supposed to score hundreds and take five the-fours. This is one of the many things cricket players should strive to do. He says that although he has not reached this point in the past years, he is glad to have achieved it in this match. 

Kagiso Rabada did not fail to praise his new-ball partner Lungi Ngidi, who took a 5/19 during the opening innings to register his 2nd five-for in the Test and his first since his debut in January 2018. According to Rabada, Lungi was able to bowl exceptionally well, right from the training camp in Centurion before traveling to the West Indies. Lungi had the ball on a string, was bowling excellent lines and lengths, and his wrist was in a good position as well as determined. Rabada says that they are going to look for the same intensity in the years to come. 

The South African team consists of experienced youngsters. Players such as Rabada, Quinny Ide Kock, and Dean Elgar, the skipper, are among the players who are experienced yet very young. Rabada says because of this reason, they are going to have massive confidence not only in the next Test match but in the coming years.
