On a chat show, Rabada was asked to name a cricketer whom he respects and who has pushed him to do his best, he said: “If you look at one day cricket, I’d say Virat Kohli is the most consistent performer, he is consistent in Test cricket as well.
“I even like the work of Ben Stokes, Steve Smith, Kane Williamson,” he added.
The South Africa pacer has 197 wickets from 43 Tests and 117 ODI wickets from 75 matches. While he has also taken 30 wickets from 24 T20 International matches and in the 18 IPL games he played, he took 31 wickets.
Rabada said he wants to get better and dreams of winning the World Cup, However, he has already accomplished a lot of success after making his Test and ODI debut in 2015.
Well, it was an ambition of mine to be where I am today. So glad to have reached that pinnacle. All I want to do now is focus on a few things that would make me play better, win a World Cup, that’d be amazing,” added Rabada.
