“I feel that responsibility has increased on me since I am now a senior player,” Rabada told at an event organized for the team by the High Commissioner of South Africa.
He said, ‘The team has not played here for four years. I have played here and I have a lot of experience playing in India. I think I can only share my experiences with players who have not played here. Otherwise, most of them have already played in India. I think players can perform well on this big stage.
He said about the team, ‘We are monitoring the next one or two years. We will then assess our progress. It is a challenge and a journey. ‘

When Rabada started his career, the team had fast bowlers like Dale Steyn and Morné Morkel. He got to learn a lot from this senior player. Apart from this, there were AB de Villiers, Hashim Amla, and Faf du Plessis who guide the young players. Now, even after playing 37 Tests and 75 ODIs, Rabada feels that he is still learning. He said, “I am constantly improving my game.”
