Former Chennai Super Kings (CSK) cricketer Faf du Plessis has ended his affiliation with the defending champions and is at the moment a frontrunner of the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in the continuing Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 season.
But, regardless of Faf having now turn out to be an RCB member, CSK’s fans’ love for the Proteas legend hasn’t come down in any respect. A glimpse of such was seen during RCB’s match against Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) on Wednesday.
A gaggle of die-hard CSK fans had been seen on the Dr. DY Patil Sports Academy in Mumbai to showcase their love and admiration for Du Plessis. The group of fans flaunted a giant banner, which learn that they’ve come to look at the sport for their former opener, who’s now captaining the Challengers in the brand new avatar.

In the sport, RCB defeated KKR to open their account on the factors desk. Chasing a paltry goal of 129 runs, RCB nearly misplaced the competition, however Dinesh Karthik’s calm and composure show of batting helped the Challengers win the sport by three wickets with 4 balls remaining.
“Very happy. Close small, margins game are very important at the start. Small score, we just tried to be positive, but very good bowling from their seamers. The ball swung a little more earlier, but today, there was seam and bounce. Two three days ago, it was 200, and today it was 130. We would like to be more convincing,“ said Du Plessis after the match.
“Just the experience. The runs were never a problem. We just needed to have wickets in hand. DK is as close as it gets to MS Dhoni when it comes to being ice cool. I rely on other people for help. We have great people in the camp. There is good communication in the group. The guys have been great. They have been supportive. They are coming to me with ideas,” he added.
