Brief Profile of Faf du Plessis (Jan 19, 2011)

Francois du Plessis or in simple – Faf du Plessis looks to be a player for the future for the South Africans in all formats of the game. This middle order right hander has a sense of calmness at the crease which he showed during his very first international innings for the Proteas. Making his ODI Debut against India at Cape Town in January 2011, Faf du Plessis walked in with his team in a crisis and he bailed them out with a neat 60 from 78 balls in what was a modest scoring match. In that knock, Faf showed his ease at playing the spinners, often stepping out and driving it classically through extra covers.

This 5ft 11 tall cricketer is an acrobatic fielder who has the ability to put in some special feats to save quite a lot of runs. He also bowls decent leg breaks to sum him up as a useful all-round cricketer much in the mould of the late Hansie Cronje – a batsman who can chip in with useful bowling.
