Smith disagrees with ICC disciplinary process on Rabada verdict

Kagiso Rabada has won his appeal against suspension and is free to play against Australia in the third test starting

"He's been made very much aware of his on-field celebration; I don't want to say "behaviour" because it's not bad behaviour, he's just very excited and exhuberant sometimes. When you have got someone out, you have already won the battle so there is no need to go over the top", he said.

"I think in any hearing you've got to be as happy as you can be", Moosajee said after the hearing.

Rabada successfully appealed against an International Cricket Council (ICC) sanction for brushing the shoulder of Australia captain Steve Smith while celebrating his dismissal in the second test, getting his punishment reduced from three demerit points to one.

Rabada's suspension was overturned after the ICC-appointed judicial commissioner, New Zealand's Michael Heron QC, found that the contact was not deliberate.

"This is perhaps an opportune moment to remind all players of their responsibilities to maintain a standard of behavior which sets a good example to players at all levels of the game".

"The key issue is whether Mr Rabada made "inappropriate and deliberate physical contact" with Mr Smith", Heron wrote. I certainly won't be telling my bowlers to go out there and after you take a wicket go and get in their space. "If I knew I did it deliberately, I wouldn't have gone to contest (the charge),' the fast bowler said". This, Smith believes, has set a troubling standard and precedent for the game. He barged into Steve Smith in his follow-through during the second Test owing to which he was handed a two-match ban courtesy of eight demerit points in the last 24 months. "As Australian cricketers we always want to play against the best players in the world and KG (Rabada) is the number one bowler in the world", Lyon said.

Barcelona coach Valverde wary of first season treble prophecy
But goals from Paco Alcacer and Lionel Messi in the first half sealed a comfortable victory for the league leaders. Antoine Griezmann converted a first-half penalty after he was impeded by Jaume Costa, before Koke hit the post.

As for the "hacked" tweet from the account of Vernon Philander, Smith described claims that he had tried to "draw the contact" from Rabada as "a load of garbage".

The Australian skipper further questioned why he was not called as a witness to the hearing, given he was the player at the receiving end of Rabada's mid-pitch bump with his shoulder in Port Elizabeth.

Gibson insisted the express paceman would be in a good mental state when the series continues, pointing to how desperate he was to train on Monday after a six-hour hearing.

"I thought it was pretty good last game after the couple of isolated incidents in the first Test match and just to make sure cricket is still the victor".

"It was certainly fair for me to come to the other side of the wicket to speak to Shaun (Marsh)". I had to force him to warm up because that's how keen he was to get stuck in.

"I'll just give you two sentences". A new match referee coming in so he wanted to have a chat with the senior players so myself, Davey [David Warner] and Nathan Lyon. Unfortunately, I couldn't. I think that's all a load of garbage to be honest. "We are trying to win a series, we will select a team to do that", he said.
