Rabada earned as many as nine demerit points, which earned him the ban.

"It's going to have to stop".

Fast bowler Kagiso Rabada during South Africa's clash with India in the third and final Test at the Wanderers.

Rabada ended the match with combined figures of 11 wickets for 150 runs, proving the clear difference between the sides. "I can't keep doing this because I am letting the team down and I am letting myself down", he was quoted as saying by ESPN Cricinfo.

Rabada said he would need to avoid getting into close proximity with opponents.

Kagiso Rabada, however, maintained his stance that he didn't brush Smith's shoulders deliberately after the match.

"I found that there was contact between Rabada and Smith, and in my judgement, the contact by Rabada was inappropriate and deliberate", he said.

"I've let myself down and let the team down", Rabada said. But honestly I never even felt contact in that moment, because I was so pumped up.

"I take no pleasure in seeing a player suspended, particularly a young player of Kagiso's talent, but he has now breached the ICC code of conduct on a number of occasions", match referee Jeff Crowe of New Zealand said.

"I don't know what is going to happen to him after this Test but if he is around for the next Test match I think he would have learnt from his mistakes".

Australia captain Steve Smith put the blame firmly on his batsmen after falling to a six-wicket defeat in the second Test against the Proteas in Port Elizabeth on Monday.

A level-one offence carries a punishment of one or two demerit points and a fine of up to half of his match fee. However, they could add only 59 more runs for the loss of the last five wickets.

The hosts wobbled chasing 101 to win on day four but AB de Villiers top-scored with 28 in Port Elizabeth, having also hit 126 not out in the first innings.

Earlier, South Africa started the day with a score of 263 for seven, leading Australia by 20 runs.

As far as the fast bowler is concerned, the second Test ought to be remembered for his 10-wicket haul, which included a fascinating spell where he took 6-54.

Rabada received support from South African captain Faf du Plessis, who complained about the firebrand's level-two charge being the same sanction as Warner received for his stairwell altercation with Quinton de Kock at Kingsmead last week.

Pat Cummins (5) and Mitchell Starc (1) followed soon after, Lungi Ngidi (2-24) had Nathan Lyon caught behind and when Josh Hazlewood (17) holed out off Keshav Maharaj (2-90), Australia were 239 all out. Tim Paine was left unbeaten on 28.

The veteran required 117 balls to register his 22nd Test century - and his first in more than three years.

Basically Australia is much better team in Test competition than South Africa in recent time being but at the home venue, Proteas would be more risky than ever before.
