Faf Du Plessis

A leading moniker of the shortest format of the sport and a man whose hands are safer than your houses, Faf du Plessis will be joining the ranks of Challengers for the first time. An experienced right-handed batter who can ace any bowler in the world, display exemplary strokeplay and control will be leading the batting-order of the Challengers in their new quest. The South African opener played a crucial role in Chennai’s title-campaign in 2021. His addition to the side at a price of Rs 7 crore will be a massive boost to a side whose title quest will be renewed with new verve and vigour.
