7. Kagiso Rabada (South Africa):
One of the finds for South Africa this year, Kagiso Rabada seems to have all the ingredients which are required to be a successful pacer at international level. The 20-year old performed exceedingly well in the alien sub-continent conditions where the fast bowlers are welcomed with hot and humid conditions along with dead tracks. In his debut match against Bangladesh, Rabada took a six-fer and won his side the lone match of the 3-match ODI series. But it was the ODI series against India in which he hogged the limelight and became a household name. In Kanpur ODI against India, Rabada’s heroics ensured a narrow win for the Protean side in the last over of the match when he outwitted one of the best ODI finishers of all time, MS Dhoni. The Johannesburg born pacer took 21 wickets in 10 ODIs, this year.
