South Africa’s Kagiso Rabada Is Now The World’s Number 1 Test Bowler

"It is a surreal feeling," says Rabada.

Twenty-two-year-old South African bowler Kagiso Rabada is now the number 1 bowler in the world in the ICC test rankings as of Tuesday.


This feat follows his team the Proteas' 72-run win in the First Test over India at Newlands in Cape Town on Monday.

Rabada surpassed England's Jimmy Anderson, who dropped five ranking points after the final Ashes Test in Sydney.

"It's special to be ranked as the number-one Test bowler in the world. It is a surreal feeling. It's what you dream of achieving when you start playing the game," Rabada said on Tuesday in an ICC statement.

"Cricket is ultimately a team sport and I'm thankful for the support from my team mates. It's a great start to the year personally and for us as a team. Hopefully we can continue putting in winning performances."

Rabada is the seventh South Africa bowler to top the Test bowling rankings after Aubrey Faulkner, Hugh Tayfield, Peter Pollock, Shaun Pollock, Dale Steyn and Vernon Philander.

Praises have since been pouring in from South Africans of all kinds for Rabada. Well done.
