Faf Du Plessis Scored 633 Runs In IPL 2021
Despite showcasing rich vein of form in the IPL, Faf Du Plessis was not considered in South Africa’s final squad for the T20 World Cup 2021.
Meanwhile, former South African skipper Shaun Pollock has said that Du Plessis should be one of CSK’s three retentions along with Ravindra Jadeja and Ruturaj Gaikwad.
“You have got to keep Ruturaj Gaikwad. Going forward, I feel he will be absolutely fantastic for them. Jadeja, I would hold on to because he’s been great with the bat and the ball. And I personally don’t think we will see Dhoni, I think he will be retained in a managerial role. I would probably go with Faf, Jadeja, and Gaikwad as the three retentions” Pollock said to Cricbuzz.
Meanwhile, Cricket South Africa has found itself in trouble after they missed Faf Du Plessis’ name while wishing CSK on their fourth IPL title. “congratulations @lungi ngidi on claiming the IPL title with Chennai Super Kings”.
Seeing this post Faf Du Plessis replied “really???” to their Instagram post, but it contained the shock and anguish that the statement caused.
