Faf du Plessis named new captain for the RCB franchise.
Gaikwad and Faf du Plessis turned out to be one of the finest opening pairs within the past IPL edition and they encouraged off each other’s qualities and shortcomings. In any case, Du Plessis wasn’t held by Chennai Super Kings ahead of IPL 2022 in spite of being one of the side’s most reliable entertainers. The right-hander was hence picked by Royal Challengers Bangalore for a strong cost of INR 7 crore within the IPL 2022 mega sell off after a offering war with the CSK.
Du Plessis was recently appointed the skipper of the Royal Challengers Bangalore for the upcoming IPL 2o22 season and the news has been talked about immensely in the cricketing fraternity. Virat Kohli decided to give up the captaincy for the franchise post IPL 2021 and with AB De Villiers’ retirement, RCB had waited a long time to announce their new skipper for the marquee event.
Here’s Ruturaj Gaikwad’s reply to Faf du Plessis’s tweet
RCB fans went crazy in happiness hearing the news of Du Plessis being appointed the skipper of the franchise. Du Plessis posted a message on Twitter thanking the management for trusting in him and was very delighted with leading the RCB franchise. He also paid gratitude to the fans for the amount of support they have already shown. Ruturaj Gaikwad, who had partnered Du Plessis at the top of the order during the latter’s stint with CSK, wished him ‘good luck’ and Du Plessis straightaway thanked him.
