This comes after Rabada made contact with Steve Smith with his shoulder after dismissing the Australian skipper.

In addition Rabada also picked up another charge after screaming in David Warner's face after bowling the opening batsman in the second innings (watch videos below).

The 22-year-old will now miss the remaining two Tests against Australia in Cape Town and Johannesburg.

Here is a timeline of Rabada's demerit point history:

  • February 2017 - Three demerit points v Sri Lanka for inappropriate and deliberate physical contact
