Francois (Faf) du Plessis first played for CSK in 2012 and continued to be with the Dhoni-led side until 2021. In between, when the Yellow Jerseys were banned for two years in 2016 & 2017, he was part of the Rising Pune SuperGiant squad. Even though Faf didn’t see a healthy start to his IPL career as he had in his Test debut, he was part of a successful side for a longer period and has been a huge part of their victories.

In the Mega-Auction conducted in 2021, Du Plessis was bought by Royal Challengers Bangalore, where he is currently helming the task of the skipper for the Bangalore-based side.

Key Stats

The best year of Faf du Plessis in the tournament came in 2021 when he opened the innings for CSK with Ruturaj Gaikwad. The opening pair was a huge success as they played a big part in CSK’s fourth IPL title that year.

The former South African captain has been a major contributor for the “yellove” side over the years – one of the top five run-scorer for CSK.

Even though Faf didn’t open for his national side across formats, he has seen success in IPL while opening the batting for his sides. He is among the top ten batters to have scored the most runs as an opener in IPL.
