Yes, I know Kagiso Rabada already had thee demerit points and has been a serial offender. He has probably been warned time and again about his behaviour. 

And when I emailed Shaun Pollock before this series and said: 'Tell me how Rabada is going,' he answered that the only area of concern was he still didn't control his emotions.

So, after getting warned for over-reacting to the dismissal of Zak Crawley at Newlands in the second Test, it was stupid of Rabada to repeat his celebration on getting Joe Root out on day one here.
