KG targets balance

Kagiso Rabada

Kagiso Rabada says he will have to pace himself at some time to enjoy a long career with the Proteas.

The South African speedster has had a sensational start to his international career since his debut in November 2014.

In 67 appearances across all formats, he boasts 150 wickets.

As a fast bowler, cricket’s most vulnerable players, South Africans are already worried about the 21-year-old’s workload, especially with being earmarked as the waning Dale Steyn’s successor.

But the paceman, who turns 22 next month, insists he will have to find the balance between turning up the turbo or taking it easy.

Ahead of next month’s Champions Trophy, the Gautenger says: “I think
the older I get, the harder it will get, definitely.

“But I’m not there yet. So right now it feels nice, I feel like I can do that.”

While currently playing for the Dehli Daredevils in the IPL, where he boasts six scalps in six matches Rabada says he is in search of balance.

He says: “Have I found the balance? I don’t know. That’s an ongoing process… There are also some precautions you take to avoid certain mishaps.

“I think I’ve been training nicely, doing what I need to do. I’m continuously finding that balance – how much to bowl, how much to rest and how much to train.”
