Rabada gets in Warner's face as SAfrica control 2nd test

Australian captain Steve Smith sets his field

Australia came back with five wickets in the final session to stop South Africa's momentum and hold the home team to 263-7 a slim lead of 20 runs by stumps on day two of the second test on Saturday.

A first Test century in three years for AB de Villiers brought great delight to South Africa's talismanic batsman, whose unbeaten 126 on Sunday helped his side into a strong position to win the second Test and tie the four-match series.

Rabada took two more wickets, including a crucial late breakthrough to get Usman Khawaja out for 75 seven minutes before stumps.

Rabada missed a Test against England previous year because of a send-off, while pace icon Michael Holding has already warned him he must take control of his emotions. "So you know you have to get to him quickly and it's important that some of our players get around KG before he gets close to the batsman", De Villiers said on Sunday.

Khawaja completed his half-century as Australia went past the deficit and soon claimed the lead.

German E.ON, RWE agree Innogy deal with major restructuring
Share in Innogy, RWE, and E.ON all surged this morning as the markets responded positively to the news. Following approval of both companies' boards, the deal was expected to be signed shortly, said EON.

Earlier, Vernon Philander (36) and Maharaj (30) helped De Villiers add 84 for the eighth wicket and 58 for the ninth wicket as South Africa dominated a sunny morning.

This comes as he still awaits the outcome of his hearing on Sunday night for a Level 2 offence after he "brushed" the shoulder of Australian captain Steve Smith on Friday.

On that occasion the advice they had was simply for him to not swear, given that the ban had been triggered after he dismissed Ben Stokes and then shouted 'F**k off!' But Rabada's celebrations have continued to be a problem - last month he earned another demerit point for giving Shikhar Dhawan a foul-mouthed send-off.

David Warner, bowled by Kagiso Rabada for 13, was the first wicket to fall after lunch followed by an unlucky Cameron Bancroft, who played on to a full ball from Lungi Ngidi for 24.

"I won't say we're frustrated (with him)", he said.

Myanmar 'building military bases on Rohingya villages'
Tirana Hassan, Amnesty's crisis response director, said, "The remaking of Rakhine State (in Myanmar) is taking place in a shroud of secrecy".

Crowe read the riot act to both du Plessis and Smith between the first and second Tests, urging the rival captains to improve their teammates' behaviour and play the game in better spirits.

Rabada is one of the best fast bowlers in the world but the 22-year-old's white- line fever has already proven costly.

De Villiers made batting look outrageously easy but he insisted it was anything but, especially when he approached three figures. He returned to tests late past year. There were other factors, I had become a dad, there were a lot of things happening in my life.

"I was so relieved, I was very nervous in the 90s. But I told myself that it wasn't about myself, it was about doing it for the team, and that helped, although it was still very hard after not scoring a hundred for three years", De Villiers said. I don't think it showed but I was telling Vern (Philander) out there that I was struggling to breathe and my legs literally went numb.
