Faf du Plessis Net Worth

Faf du Plessis is a South African top-order batsman who is 38 years old but still comes in the elite category of most fearsome T20 batsman around the world. The Protease legend retired from Test cricket and ODI cricket in 2021 but is still available for selection in T20 format for the South African team.

He has been always under-appreciated for his performances at the International level and franchise cricket. With an average of more than 35 in all formats, he is one of few cricketers to achieve this scintillating feat. Faf’s journey in cricket was not straightforward as he is the second cousin of Namibian rugby player Marcel and initially was more into rugby till schooling days.

Faf’s International debut came very late in 2011 at age of 27 considering his talent and performances at the domestic level. He is one of the best mates of South African legend AB De Villiers and after AB’s retirement, he was the one to take forward South African cricket. Faf is in the last stage of his career but still is very fit and popular. In this article, we will take you through the luxurious lifestyle of this hunk.

Faf du Plessis’s IPL Career 

Faf du Plessis’s IPL Career started in 2011 when MS Dhoni spotted Du Plessis in Champions League T20 2010 where he reportedly demanded Chennai management to buy him at 2011 mega auctions. He was snapped by Chennai in 2011 for 50 Lakhs and performed decently in the first few seasons. Although due to the established pair of Mike Hussey and Murali Vijay, he had to bat in the middle order.

Chennai again restored their faith in him at 2014 auctions. However, after Chennai’s exclusion, he moved to Rising Pune Supergiants. In 2018, Chennai Super Kings again bought him for 1.6 Crores when it turned out to be a masterstroke. Du Plessis showed splendid form from 2018 to 2021 and unfortunately will have to don the RCB jersey from the 2022 season after the bumper 7 Crores contract.
