South African pacer Kagiso Rabada made headlines when he was banned for a match by the International Cricket Council (ICC) for celebrating excessively after taking wicket of England’s skipper Joe Root in the third Test at Port Elizabeth.


Now, the Proteas speedster posted a tweet in order to take a dig at ICC. Rabada captioned his post with a hashtag – #dollypartonchallenge.

This viral challenge on social media started when American singer and songwriter naming Dolly Parton posted a photo compilation of four “versions” of herself—which were represented by LinkedIn, Facebook, Instagram, and Tinder.


In his tweet, Rabada posted four different images of himself across different platforms. However, the majority of the frames were covered with the infamous celebration that handed him a one-match ban.

The 24-year-old is one of the most successful fast bowlers in modern-day cricket. At this young age, Rabada has taken 197 wickets in 43 Tests. Amongst South African bowlers, the right-armer sits at eighth place in leading wicket-takers list. While in ODIs, he has scalped 117 wickets in 75 games.
