London - He’s only just turned 22 but on the eve of the ICC Champions Trophy, Proteas speedster Kagiso Rabada is already on top of the world.

The exciting young paceman has lit up the global game over the last two years, during which time he has become South Africa’s leading quick bowler, moving ahead of his esteemed but injury-plagued colleagues Dale Steyn and Morne Morkel.

The Proteas enter the ICC Champions Trophy as the world’s No 1-ranked ODI side and, thanks to a haul of 4-39 in the third ODI against England at Lord’s which helped to blow away the hosts for 153, Radaba goes in as the No 1 bowler in ODI cricket.
