Australia v South Africa at MCG, results, scores, wickets, odds, how to watch, David Warner

South Africa’s bowling coach Charl Langeveldt has challenged Protea’s spearhead Kagiso Rabada to bowl better on flat pitches.

Rabada, the world’s leading Test wicket-taker in 2022, was well short of his best at the MCG as Australia secured a 386-run lead in the first innings at 8-585.

The 27-year-old finished with numbers 2-144 as South Africa was forced to play for 145 overs.

“I think ‘KG’ (Rabada) wasn’t in the song, but if I can single out him and a couple of the other guys, we didn’t do well as a unit,” said Langeveldt.

Langeveldt challenged Rabada to study Australia captain Pat Cummins as an example of a bowler with consistency.

“For KG he’s a wicket-taker, he always has the ability to take wickets for us, the challenge for him is to control that,” said Langeveldt.

“I think Cummins lost a few runs early on but then he got consistent and he was aggressive and that’s his (Rabadas) challenge going forward.

“He’s one of the leading wicket-takers in red ball cricket but I think playing on flatter wickets going forward will be the challenge for him.”

South Africa resumes at 1-15 on Thursday and still needs another 371 to beat Australia again in the Boxing Day Test.
