On Tuesday, veteran South African strokemaker put on display his another brilliant knock as the batter brought up his first century in SA20 league and guided his side Joburg Super Kings to a victory.
Captaining his side, Du Plessis scripted history as he became the first batter to score a ton in SA20, Cricket South Africa’s (CSA) premier T20 League.
The 38-year-old batter came out alongside Reeza Hendrick and amassed a 157-run opening stand that put Super Kings in a dominant position during the run chase.
Du Plessis, however, has never scored a hundred in the Indian Premier League but he managed to notch up this ton in just 54 balls and powered the Kings to 8-wicket win over Durban’s Super Giants. In doing so, he scored 8 fours and as many sixes in the match 22 of SA20 2023 at the Wanderers.
On the other hand, Faf’s partner Reeza Hendrick also scored a cautious 45 off 46 balls. Later, the batter lost his wicket in the 17th over off Reece Topley’s bowling.
