10 best tweets about Faf du Plessis batting heroism against Punjab kings
New Royal Challengers Bangalore captain Faf du Plessis kicked off his IPL 2022 campaign with a hit note as he delivered a terrific captaincy shot against the Punjab Kings in their first game on Sunday at Dr. DY Patil Sports Academy.
At the start of the match, Punjab Kings captain Mayank Agarwal won the coin toss and opted to play first. However, the decision backfired badly as RCB captain Faf du Plessis literally destroyed the Punjab Kings bowlers with his aggressive stick.
Skipper Faf du Plessis and Anuj Rawat started the heats well for Royal Challengers Bangalore and added some quick points in the Power-Play. However, Anuj Rawal was quickly fired after Power-play after being knocked down by Rahul Chahar.
Following his sacking, Virat Kohli partnered with Faf du Plessis in the middle and together they took charge of the RCB innings as they aimed for a tough aggregate against the Punjab Kings. However, they started off slow and took a while to settle in, but Faf quickly shifted gears and stormed the game.
Faf wreaked havoc at Dr. DY Patil Sports Academy while it was raining four and six. He completed his fifty in just 41 balls and after that there was no turning back for the captain. He was at 23* (34) before shifting gears and adding 41 runs on just 10 balls.
However, he missed a well-deserved century and was fired after scoring 88 runs on 57 balls with 3 fours and 7 sixes.
Meanwhile, fans on social media went wild after Faf du Plessis’ thrilling performance and in no time, social media was flooded with incredible reactions from fans.
