Dali Mpofu labelled 'Advocate of the people' after Rabada outcome

Praises are flowing in for Advocate Dali Mpofu after he represented the Proteas fast bowler Kagiso Rabada on Tuesday.

Tweeps went as far as calling Mpofu "Advocate of the people", the messiah and Isikhokho (the great one).

Rabada was cleared to play with immediate effect after the International Cricket Council (ICC)’s decision to suspend him for two Test matches, the remainder of the four-match series against Australia.

Cricket South Africa appealed against the ICC's decision.

Independent judicial commissioner, Michael Heron ruled that Rabada was not guilty of a Level 2 breach, but was guilty of conduct contrary to the spirit of the game.

Here are some of the celebratory remarks for Mpofu on Twitter:

Advocate Dali Mpofu spoke to 702/CapeTalk's Eusebias McKaiser following the historic win against the ICC. Take a listen below:
