The year 2020 might not have brought great fortune for Chennai Super Kings, but their star player Faf Du Plessis is having a great 2020 so far. Faf came all guns blazing in the tournament and has delivered goods more than once, when the entire CSK setup is crumbling in the UAE.
Personally, Faf has had a good tournament till now and it became more special when his wife Imari made a special request to former South African captain. Faf was asked to have more babies on an Instagram story by his beautiful wife Imari.
Faf and Imari got married back in 2013. Faf is already a proud father of two babies. The lovely couple was blessed with a baby girl Zoey earlier this year and they also had a child in 2017.
How on earth? One can deny such a beautiful request from love of life as Faf responded in affirmative to give a go to parenthood for the third time. He mentioned his wife in the Insta story and wrote, “I am ready, Let’s go.”
In what has been a horrible season for Chennai Super Kings, Faf is the only shining star in dark sky of CSK fortunes this season. With an ever-aging squad, CSK’s batsmen and bowlers have failed to match the quality oppositions on big grounds of UAE. In the 10 matches this season, CSK has already conceded 7 defeats to end up in bottom of the points table.
Their batting has looked out of fire and their bowling, which was handmade for the slow tracks of Chennai, has lacked pace to trouble the batsmen in UAE. Absence of Harbhajan Singh and Suresh Raina, their two strong pillars in batting and bowling, has also hurt them badly as none of their replacement – N Jagdeesan, Ruturaj Gaikwad and Piyush Chawla- has performed well.
While Chasing the target, they have failed to devise a smart batting plan, their batting has also lacked firepower while setting the target. Faf Du Plessis, though, has anchored the innings, rest of batsmen have shown little intent and application to overpower the opposition.
