South Africa’s leading fast bowler Kagiso Rabada borrows his father’s style to celebrate, seen in an ICC video for days celebrating in a similar fashion.

The International Cricket Council has finally found out who South African bowler Kagiso Rabada imitates to celebrate after dismissing a batter. He celebrates like no one else but just like his father.

Kagiso Rabada’s father, who was present at the stadium during the match between Sri Lanka and South Africa, told the ICC that he had come from South Africa to watch his son play.

Meanwhile, when Rabada dismissed the Sri Lankan batter, the son on the ground and his father in the stands alike celebrated, which was recorded on video by the ICC.

It should be noted that South Africa defeated Sri Lanka by 102 runs in their first match of the World Cup. Sri Lanka scored 326 runs in 44.5 overs in pursuit of 429 runs given by South Africa.
