Though South Africa paceman Kagiso Rabada has been on the scene for a while, his maiden Test five-fer set the Twittering tongues wagging.
He baggd five against England at the Wanderers on Saturday, his previous best being three wickets for a lot of runs, and social media reacted accordingly.

Kagiso Rabada. Only 20 years old. Again the pick of #Proteas bowlers: 5 for 76. The birth of a superstar?
