Former England captain Michael Vaughan has criticized Du Plessis for not including him in the squad. Vaughn tweeted that Du Plessis’s absence from the team was ridiculous. Du Plessis has reportedly lost his place in the national team due to instability.
Du Plessis has excelled in every season he has played in the IPL. Du Plessis, who is also the favorite of CSK captain MS Dhoni, has scored 633 runs in 16 games this season. Du Plessis, who is also a great outfielder, is the coveted player of any franchise in the IPL. One of those players was eliminated from the South African team.
Throughout the season, Du Plessis was able to form a good partnership with Rituraj Gay. Through this, the two were able to keep the helm of many of CSK’s hits. The duo put up 91 for the first wicket in the final. This was crucial in the game. Due to Du Plessis’s IPL form, there are indications that he may be included in the national team for the World Cup at the last minute.
