Royal Challengers Bangalore captain Faf du Plessis has been in phenomenal form in the ongoing 16th season of the Indian Premier League, having already smashed six half-centuries across the 11 innings so far.

Presently donning the Orange Cap (for most number of runs), the 38-year-old has made it a point to provide blistering starts to his team especially in the Powerplay, and his improved game against spinners has made him an even more dangerous batter than the preceding years.

In fact, amongst the present top-10 leading run-scorers in IPL 2023, the Proteas batter’s strike rate is the second-best – at 157.80, with the Rajasthan Royals opening batter Yashasvi Jaiswal leading in his facet of the game, striking at 160.60.

However, almost like taking a pledge to never let the undying passion for Cricket fade away even a tad, he made sure to continue the love relationship by assigning the field of journalism as an indirect Cupid.
