Rabada contested the first charge, claiming the contact with Smith, who he brushed past as he celebrated the wicket, was unintentional. The hearing spanned nearly an hour.
Rabada will remain suspended if he appeals, although South Africa could attempt to convince the judicial commissioner that he should be allowed to play.
But SA are considering making a last-gasp legal attempt to try to keep the fast bowler in their XI for the third Test at Newlands in Cape Town, starting on March 22.
Much of that may be put down to the absence of Kagiso Rabada - South Africa's 11-wicket spearhead in the second Test has been banned for the remainder of the tour after racking up the demerit points in his altercation with Steve Smith. "A lot has been said about how incredible KG's rise is, best strike-rate in world cricket at the moment or ever, so I don't think you have to say too much more".
Crowe said he in his judgement the contact with Smith had been inappropriate and deliberate. "Just to be part of a successful Test team". Makhaya Ntini also did it four times, but from 101 Tests, and Allan Donald managed only three ten-wicket matches from his 72-Test career.
Democrat Holds Slight Lead In Congressional District Trump Won By 20 Points
Tuesday's special election was triggered by Murphy resigning from the seat he held for almost 15 years, following a sex scandal. He favors enforcing existing gun laws and improving the current system of background checks over setting new gun restrictions.
Dale Steyn took 86 Tests to reach his South Africa record of five 10-wicket hauls, with Allan Donald only mustering three landmark single-Test returns in 72 matches.
"It's going have to stop". It is scary to think that he is only going to get better and is he keeps going like this, he is nearly certain to end up as the greatest pacer in South Africa's history.
"It's up to some of our senior guys to just help him (Rabada)".
"If you look at the way "KG" plays the game‚ he's a competitive fast bowler and he works bloody hard‚" Du Plessis said.
"I would've been the same".
Talk it out: Should Donald Trump meet with the North Koreans?
President Donald Trump is gearing up to do something that hasn't been done in more than a decade - meet with the leader of North Korea.
"I will have to see it as a big learning curve and not repeat the same mistake because I've repeated the same mistake in the eyes of the umpires. I have sympathy for the guys who cross the line but they've got to find a way".
"[Smith] did say that it would be an Australian tactic to get Rabada fired up".
Is a two-match ban a fair punishment for Rabada's antics? Australia's bowling coach David Saker admitted Rabada's enforced omission would be a huge boost for the tourists. "It set it up for an AB masterclass, which is the ideal situation for him to come in and transfer that pressure", du Plessis said. "Kagiso is absolutely a champion bowler and am really proud of him".
"I'm probably the worst person ever to be commenting on disciplinary (issues)".
De Villiers did not play Test cricket between January 2016 and December 2017, after he decided he needed time away from the game.
