WATCH: Faf du Plessis completes his Fifty with an ABD-style Six

Former South African captain Faf du Plessis had been named the skipper of Royal Challengers Bangalore this season as Virat Kohli stepped down from the position and he has played an absolutely Captain’s knock in their first match of IPL 2022 against Punjab Kings. He has already scored 65 runs so far in just 45 deliveries and seems to be in absolutely no mood to stop.

Faf du Plessis was playing well right from the first ball but he shifted to the third gear in the 13th over when he and Virat Kohli scored 23 runs together in one over against Odean Smith. Virat Kohli hit a 4 off the first ball and took a single. And then it was all Faf du Plessis. He hit a 4, 4 and then a 6. The six is particularly being praised a lot as it reminded fans of AB de Villiers, the former RCB legend who retired at the end of last season. He also completed his fifty with that impeccable shot.

However, he did not stop there. In the next over, he hit two consecutive sixes in two deliveries before rotating the strike against Harpreet Brar and then Kohli too hit a six.

Captain de Plessis is being supported well in the innings by RCB’s former captain Virat Kohli. Kohli has also performed very well so far. He has scored 32 runs in 21 deliveries. The two have also completed their hundred runs partnership.

If the two of them keep on performing like this together, RCB might as well win the IPL trophy this season.
