South Africa ace batsman, AB de Villiers, expects the likes of Kagiso Rabada and Morne Morkel to create a memorable series for Australia. AB took to Twitter to deliver the message to his fast bowlers during the first Test match in Durban.

The incident came in the backdrop of the leaked CCTV footage from the staircase of dressing rooms at the Kingsmead, Durban.
It was evident from the footage that David Warner and Quinton de Kock engaged in a verbal duel. The two picked up the fight en route to the dressing room during the tea interval on Day four.
Warner was seen picking up a fight with the young wicketkeeper from South Africa before the likes of Paine, Lyon, and captain Smith forcefully took him back to the dressing room.
The situation was brought under control before Rabada, and de Villiers had to intervene. Throughout the day, the Aussie opener seemed fired up, as he gave a mouthful to the Aiden Markram post-AB’s run out.
Australia spinner Nathan Lyon cheekily threw the ball on AB when he was down, failing to reach the crease after he was run-out on a knot.
The Aussies, featuring Warner and Mitchell Starc resorted to sledging throughout the day.
Over the years, such unsporting behaviours from the Kangaroos have been pushed under the carpet. It has been termed as the ‘Aussie way’.
AB de Villiers reckons the ongoing series would be a memorable one. Also, one can expect some sweet chin music from the likes of Rabada and Morkel.
Here’s the post
This series will be one to remember
