Faf du Plessis is a South African batsman. He has retired from ODI and Test cricket some time ago with a statement that he wants to focus on T20 format. He plays many T20 leagues all over the world but looks like IPL is his favourite league. He has been loyal to a single team in IPL which is Chennai Super Kings.
Faf was bought by the Chennai Super Kings even before he was a permanent South African batsman. He was not selected in the squad if the team as there were a lot of openers in Chennai but he has played many fabulous knocks amd saved the team from many losses. Faf had to move to the Rising Pune Supergiants as Chennai was banned for two years but he was back to the Kings after the ban was lifted.
In recent years Faf has been a permanent opener for Chennai. Since last two years Faf has opened with Ruturaj Gaikwad a young Indian batsman and has showed the fans an amazing chemistry as their opening pair has the most runs together in those two years. In the 2021 season Faf was the second highest run scorer just by 2 runs while the highest run scorer was Ruturaj.
It is very likely that Chennai buys Faf again in the player auction but other teams will not let him go easily as many Teams like Kolkata, Bangalore, Ahmedabad do not have good openers in their team and will be looking forward at buying Faf.
