Kagiso Rabada Rises To The Top. At Just 22 years of age, Proteas’ fast bowler Kagiso Rabada has been hailed as the World’s Number 1 Bowler. How cool is that!
On Tuesday the International Cricket Council confirmed Rabada as test cricket’s premier bowler at the moment, pushing veteran seamer James Anderson into second place. “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.
Rabada is the seventh South Africa bowler to top the ICC Test Bowling Rankings after Aubrey Faulkner, Hugh Tayfield, Peter Pollock, Shaun Pollock, Dale Steyn and Vernon Philander.
