India needed 11 off the final over and Rabada bowled brilliantly to concede just five runs. He narrated how he went about his task in the 50th over of India’s innings.
"I have never felt more pressure in the game than yesterday. Simply because of magnitude of the players and level of cricket. The fans, the big game, it was very emotional," Rabada said at a press conference.
"I was speaking to AB (de Villiers) at that time and I said to AB 'listen we have been bowling back of a length all this while, that has been the plan so what do you think?'. He said 'no' because MS can pounce on those full balls. The plan was very great and it worked out great.
"Pitched back of a length and we felt it was harder and harder to bat as the day progressed. It was a two paced wicket. We were clear in the last over about what to do. Adjusted well in the conditions and it paid off," said Rabada, who has quickly earned the praise of his teammates after making his T20 debut in November and ODI debut as recent as July when he took a hat-trick against Bangladesh in his first 50 over appearance.
