England capitulated on the fifth morning at Centurion as Kagiso Rabada inspired South Africa to a commanding consolation victory in the fourth Test .

Andy Pycroft of the ICC Elite Panel of Match referees proposed the sanction, which was accepted by Rabada, meaning a formal hearing was not needed.

Rabada now has four demerit points in a 24-month period and as a result will be unavailable for the final match of the series at the Wanderers, which starts on January 24.

This enraged former England skipper Michael Vaughan, who took to social media to lash out at the 'bonkers' decision.

"Rabada getting a 1 game ban for celebrating taking the Wicket of the opponents best player is absolutely bonkers," he said.

"Over rates & slow play nothing gets done,

"Celebrate a wicked and you are banned.

"The World is bloody nuts."
