South Africa lost their first match of ICC cricket world cup 2019 against England. Today, they will face Bangladesh in their second match of world cup 2019. Kagiso Rabda could not perform well in the last game. But he is the champion bowler. So South Africa is hoping that he can back in form.

In a recent interview with ESPNcricinfo Kagiso Rabada Revealed an incident of Indian premier league 2019 with  Virat Kohli.

Kagiso Rabada Said,

“I was just thinking about the game plan, really, but Virat, he hit me for a boundary and then he had a word. And then when you give it back to him, he gets angry. I don’t get the guy. Maybe he does it because it gets him going, but that comes across as very immature for me. He is a phenomenal player, but he can’t take the abuse.”

“You have to think about what you are going to do, because the wicket was good. All it was was a verbal fight. Something like that will not distract me. If anything, it is just going to wake me up to hit my areas a lot more consistently,” Kagiso Rabada added.

“But later that evening, on the bus back to the hotel, I asked myself: ‘That guy [Kohli] always seems to be angry on the field. Is he really angry?’ Then I thought to myself what it would take for me to become really, really angry. That is going to happen very few and far times in between. And becoming angry like that – is that what gets him to play well? Do you know what I am saying? I can’t psyche myself to be angry,” he signed off.
