South Africa bowler Kagiso Rabada has been hit with his second misconduct charge of the Test series against Australia, according to a report on BBC Sport.

The 22-year-old has been reported for a send-off to Australian batsman David Warner on day three of the second Test.

The bowler has managed to take a total of eleven wickets so far for South Africa, so losing him for the remainder of the series will be a massive blow to their hopes of winning.

A send-off is the lowest leal-one offence that can be committed, but because he was already charged with another incident with Australia captain Steve Smith, he could miss the rest of the series.

The hearing for the first charge was held on Sunday and Rabada is waiting for the result.

Rabada was charged after he brushed shoulders with Smith following taking a wicket. That is a level two offence and carries three or four demerit points, with a fine of anything between 50% and 100% of his wage.

Rabada has a history of being in trouble with the authorities for misconduct after he was suspended for one Test against England last summer for an altercation with Ben Stokes.

He is currently on five demerit points and will be banned for two Tests if he manages to reach eight.
