2014 Season Statistics






Birth Date 13 July 1984
IPL debut 2012

Drafted into the CSK squad ahead of the 2011 season, this South African batsman had to wait an entire season to play his first game. He finally got his chance in IPL 2012 and he made it count immediately with some solid performances opening the batting. Francois du Plessis impressed with a half-century on his ODI debut, against India and soon enough, found himself in South Africa’s squad for the 2011 World Cup. With a century on Test debut against Australia, du Plessis has shed the tag of a limited-overs specialist. Although batting remains his area of prowess, du Plessis can come up with a few handy leg-spinners when required. To boot that, he is a livewire in the field, hence, making him a perfect T20 package for any captain.
