South Africa cricket team had a chaotic Cricket World Cup 2019 so far as they are out of the race to the glory without causing any problems for the oppositions. It is a world cup to forget for the Proteas. Their hopes of the maiden World Cup trophy ended with their defeat against Pakistan.
In this mayhem, Faf du Plessis- the South African captain stood tall against all the odds and performed consistently for his team. He has scored the most number of runs for South Africa in this World Cup and also the highest individual score for them, 96 not out- which came against Sri Lanka.
Faf du Plessis was the lone ranger for South Africa in the abyss of downfall, he continued to perform with the bat when no one else did. Although South Africa does not have many positives to take from this world cup, du Plessis form will be surely something they can look forward to.
