Kagiso Rabada is set to be available for the T20 World Cup after leaving the IPL early


Despite having an illness in his lower limb’s soft tissue, Kagiso Rabada left the Indian Premier League on Sunday night and is anticipated to be available for the full T20 World Cup. Rabada, who claimed 11 wickets at an economy of 8.85 over his 11 games for the Punjab Kings, will not play in their final two games.

After being included in the squad on April 30, Rabada is anticipated to be a key member of South Africa’s pace attack during their T20 World Cup campaign. Having participated in the last three T20 World Cups in 2016, 2021, and 2022, this tournament in the West Indies and USA will be his fourth participation as a Proteas representativ
