Cape Town - He's just 22, but he's already on top of the world! SA cricket's golden boy, Kagiso Rabada, is back at the No 1 bowling spot in the ICC Test rankings.
The speedster bowled his way to the top after helping the Proteas secure a 72-run victory over India in the first Test at Newlands on Monday.
"It's special to be ranked as the number-one Test bowler in the world. It is a surreal feeling. It's what you dream of achieving when you start playing the game," Rabada said in an ICC statement on Tuesday.
"Cricket is ultimately a team sport and I'm thankful for the support from my team-mates. It's a great start to the year, personally and for us as a team. Hopefully we can continue putting in winning performances."
Social media users couldn't wait to praise the fast bowler, even former sports minister Fikile Mbalula tweeted his delight.
