The second-leading run-scorer in the IPL 2021 was the South African veteran, Faf Du Plessis. In this season, opening for CSK, he has amused everyone by scoring 633 runs in 16 fixtures with a 138.2 strike rate and banging six half-centuries in his name.

Faf made a major contribution in the final game hitting a splendid 86 runs from just 59 balls. He performed brilliantly and questions started arising from left, right, and center on why he was not part of South Africa’s T20 squad this year.

Faf du Plessis and Ruturaj Gaikwad became the famous opening duo. Their combination was definitely a success as they scored 635 runs with a strike rate of 136.26. Both of them proved their mettle as individuals and as a pair and had the primary responsibility to lift their fourth IPL trophy this year. Due to the age factor, the CSK team might think twice to retain this 37-year-old.
