Kagiso Rabada's girlfriend

Sho Madjozi, a South African artist, is not dating Kagiso Rabada. Contrary to popular opinion, the couple denied having romantic ties. Early in 2020, Kagiso and Sho made an appearance together during the NBA All-Star Weekend in Chicago, Illinois. Despite their appearance as friends, their fans believed they had chemistry, and many of them shipped them.

However, they both insisted that they were good friends who got together frequently. Madjozi and Rabada also have a connection because both of them love cricket, and their friendship started on Instagram a year and a half before they made headlines.


Kagiso Rabada Cricket

Kagiso Rabada played in South Africa, South Africa U19, South Africa A, Lions, Kent, Delhi Capitals, Joburg Giants, Jozi Stars, Manchester Originals, Punjab Kings, MI Cape Town. The most promising player to come out of South Africa in the post-No. 1 Test ranking era is Kagiso Rabada, a strong, genuine fast who frequently bowls in the 140-150kph zone. Rabada had already established himself as a prospective assault leader before turning 21.

At the 2014 Under-19 World Cup, Rabada made a name for himself by going 6 for 25 against Australia in the semi-final. Rabada finished as South Africa's leading wicket-taker as they went on to win the championship, their first ever. He received a franchise contract from Lions three months later, and by the end of the year, he was a member of the national ODI and Test squads. In Adelaide, he played against Australia in his first T20I.

Rabada demonstrated his skills in the lengthier format at the start of 2015. He broke Dale Steyn's mark set seven seasons earlier by bowling 14 for 105 in a first-class match, setting a new record for South Africa. He ended the year as the Sunfoil Series' third-highest wicket-taker. He was a member of all three Bangladesh tour squads in July and August 2015, and he became just the second player to record a hat-trick on his ODI debut. He ultimately recorded the best figures for a rookie: 6 for 16.

Rabada also participated in a match against New Zealand at home before being invited on a tour of India. Together with Steyn, he topped the list of ODI wicket-takers with 10 wickets. Rabada had the opportunity to participate in three of the four Test matches of that series because of the injuries to Morne Morkel, Steyn, and Vernon Philander. He put up a lot of effort on hostile surfaces, frequently going unnoticed, but he showed the endurance expected of a Test bowler.


When Rabada played against England at home instead of Steyn and Philander, the surfaces there gave him more support. Rabada became the youngest South African to take 10 wickets in a game during the final Test, which South Africa had already lost.

He continued to play additional four ODIs, two T20 Internationals, and three T20 Internationals against Australia, and he also served as the attacking captain at the 2016 World T20 in India. His workload did not decrease. Rabada appeared poised for an IPL stint after his performances, but he decided to sign a month-long contract with Kent's county team instead.

Rabada was selected for the South African team to compete in the ICC Men's T20 World Cup in September 2021. Rabada became the first bowler for South Africa to take a hat-trick in T20I cricket on November 6, 2021, against England in South Africa's final game of the competition. Rabada participated in his 50th Test in the third game of the series against India in January 2022. Rabada's maiden five-for at Lord's came on Day 2 of the first test match of the series against England in August 2022, earning him a spot on the coveted honours board. He joins Allan Donald, Makhaya Ntini, and Vernon Philander as the only other South African bowlers to accomplish this feat since being readmitted.
