The Australians faced some spicy bowling from Duanne Olivier in their only warm-up match of the tour, and Bancroft pointed to his inclusion alongside Chris Morris to state that he expected South Africa to remain chirpy in the middle also, regardless of whether Rabada turned out to be available.

Rabada, Proteas captain Faf du Plessis and team manager Mohammed Moosajee all gave evidence during proceedings, which Heron chaired via video conference.

Training was scheduled for 2pm at Newlands, but fast bowler Kagiso Rabada was still tied up in a marathon appeal hearing, which is set to decide his fate for the remainder of the series.

"It s been nice to get some time off", said Elgar. Whether "KG" is playing in the third test or not, it's out of our hands.

SC to deliver order on Khaleda's bail prayer Monday
The High Court had on March 12 granted interim bail for four months to the Bangladesh Nationalist Party chief. Zia's defense lawyer, Zainul Abedin, described the Supreme Court's order to suspend her bail as unprecedented.

"He is going to expect that they will come out and say something to him".

Rabada, who has been highly influential in the two Tests so far, was given the ban for making physical contact with Australian captain Steve Smith during the second Test in Port Elizabeth.

An extended break between the second and third Tests had some hoping there might be more cordial relations at Newlands, where the series continues on Thursday.

Opener Dean Elgar, though, insists the Proteas are not focusing on what the outcome is. The series is now levelled at 1-1 and both the teams will be looking to take the lead in the third Test.

"In any hearing you've got to be as happy as you can be". It's not something my team requires, they require me to bat out a day which obviously puts us in a good position as we saw in PE.

As hard as South Africa are trying to practice non-attachment as they refocus their minds on the task ahead, there is no escaping what they stand to lose if Rabada's ban stands.

"Having him in the side is massive for us. I didn't even feel contact in that moment because I was so pumped up", Rabada told reporters after the game. "The intensity should be there, that is what makes this format so special in my eyes". While Morris was in the squad for the India Tests, he failed to make it to the playing eleven in any of the three games.

The veteran offered sympathy to Rabada, who will miss the final two Tests for brushing the shoulder of Australia skipper Steve Smith unless he wins an appeal to be heard Monday.
