Cape Town – Currently at Number 3 on the ICC’s Test bowler rankings, at the age of 23, Proteas bowler Kagiso Rabada is already a force to be reckoned with.

Rabada was on the cover of the February GQ South Africa magazine. He is always well put together and so it’s no surprise that he has partnered with clothing brand Trenery.

I attended a photo-shoot where he and Olympic gold medallist swimmer Cameron van der Burgh were modelling some of Trenery’s autumn/winter range as part of the Trenery Icons.

Rabada told us of his fashion must-haves and this and that.

How would you describe your style?

In one word: Simple. I go for good quality, comfort and I love a good suit.

What’s a winter essential?

Even though I often travel around the world where it’s summer. I think a good coat is essential... add a few polo necks and boots.
