Speedster Kagiso Rabada dedicated a couple of verses of the hit Bill Withers number “Ain’t No Sunshine” to his former teammate Morne Morkel.
Kagiso Rabada is a person of many skills. In addition to performing effectively with the ball for South Africa, within the Indian Premier League, the South African pacer can also sing very effectively.
In a video interview with former South Africa teammate Morne Morkel, Rabada gave his followers a glimpse of his myriad skills as he sang a few verses from famed singer-songwriter Invoice Withers’ “Ain’t No Sunshine.”
Kagiso Rabada may be a nightmare for the batters on the field, but he showed another side of his personality during a recent chat with his former South Africa teammate, Morne Morkel.
Obliging to Morkel’s request to give a glimpse of his other talents, the 26-year-old dedicated a couple of verses of the hit Bill Withers number “Ain’t No Sunshine” to his former teammate.
Ever since you have gone, it’s been a bit hard for me and hard for a lot of other people. You made the move down under, but I’m sure you are pretty happy. I thought I should remix a song just for you, “Rabada told Morkel before showcasing his singing talent.
Besides making life difficult for batters, the 26-year-old is a handy lower-order batter and a good striker of the ball as well. But these are just his on-field talents, and Rabada is much more than that.
He is part of the Punjab Kings set up in the 15th edition of the Indian Premier League.
He was signed for Rs 9.25 crore by the Mayank Agarwal-led side in the mega auctions.
