He also lost 1 demerit point owing to an aggressive send-off <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/Shikhar-Dhawan" target="_blank">Shikhar Dhawan</a> during the sixth ODI, at Port Elizabeth. Rabada, in total, has 5 demerit points. He gained 3 during the Sri Lanka home series in early 2017 and added 2 more on the England tour. If Rabada adds 3 or more demerit points during the rolling 24-month period, he would be entitled to lose either 2 Tests; or 1 Test and 2 ODIs/T20Is; or 4 ODIs/T20Is, according to the itinerary. <p></p> <p></p>The incident took place in the eighth over of the match. During Dhawan's 23-ball 34, he took on Rabada and slammed a few boundaries off his bowling. This irked Rabada, who got rid of Dhawan off a short delivery. That dismissal prompted an aggressive send-off from Rabada, and Dhawan walked away without responding. <p></p> <p></p>Rabada was booked under article 2.1.7 that relates to "using language, actions or gestures which disparage or which could provoke an aggressive reaction from a batsman upon his/her dismissal during an International Match". <p></p> <p></p>India hammered South Africa by 73 runs in the match and sealed the series 4-1. <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/teams/india" target="_blank">India</a> posted 274 for 7. In reply, South Africa managed only 201. This was India's first ODI victory at the venue and maiden series win in South Africa.
