JOHANNESBURG - Proteas seamer Kagiso Rabada will miss South Africa’s final two Tests of the series against Australia after he was suspended by the International Cricket Council.

KG was found guilty of the offence of "inappropriate and deliberate physical contact with a player", according to a Level 2 ICC Code of Conduct.

The incident in question involved Australia captain Steve Smith after he was dismissed by Rabada during Australia’s first innings.

Rabada has been fined 50 percent of his match fee and receives three demerit points. He had denied the charge.
