Reading Time: < 1 minute

Kagiso Rabada‘s appeal hearing against a Level two breach of the International Cricket Council Code of Conduct was held at the Westin Hotel in Cape Town.

New Zealand’s Michael Heron was appointed the Judicial Commissioner for the hearing, and it was held via video-conference.

It lasted more than four hours.

Heron will have until Wednesday afternoon to arrive at a decision.

Rabada was suspended for the remaining two matches of the on-going four-match series against Australia.

He was handed three demerit points and a 50% fine by International Cricket Council (ICC) Match Referee Jeff Crowe for an inappropriate and deliberate shoulder contact with Australia captain Steve Smith.

The incident was on the opening day of the second Test in Port Elizabeth.
