Rabada has been suspended for one match following him breaching the code of conduct.

The incident took place during the first test match between England and South Africa when Rabada used obscene words after dismissing Ben Stokes on the first day of the first test match.

"South Africa's Kagiso Rabada has been suspended for next week's Trent Bridge Test after his accumulated demerit points reached four within a 24-month period following his latest breach of the ICC Code of Conduct for which he received a 15 percent fine and one demerit point," said a statement issued by the global governing body.

An ICC statement said Rabada had "used inappropriate language after dismissing England batsman Ben Stokes, which was audible over the stump microphones and also resulted in the batsman to turn before walking off the field".

"During the opening day's play in the Lord's Test against England on Thursday, Rabada was found guilty of ... 'using language, actions or gestures which disparage or which could provoke an aggressive reaction from a batsman upon his/her dismissal during an international match'."

The ICC said Rabada had admitted the offence on Friday and accepted the sanction proposed by match referee Jeff Crowe, the former New Zealand captain.

Rabada will not be allowed to play the second test match against England which is to be held at Nottingham's Trent Bridge which will be starting from next Friday.
