South African captain Faf du Plessis shares in an interview with the press that he might be having his last Test match on their home soil this year.
35-year-old captain Faf du Plessis admits the possibility of the fourth Test of the series set to happen at the Wanderers against England could be his last match on their home soil. He also stated that he’ll walk away from international cricket this year.
Du Plessis also said in the interview that he is committed to the team until the T20 World Cup and that the team still needs to be as strong as possible for the upcoming massive Test match. He also reinstated his statement about releasing a part of his captaincy after the two Test matches in the West Indies in July. After that, he says, Test cricket will no longer see him.
As the South African captain confirms the possibility, he said that he didn’t want to make some decisions based on emotions or on their team standing. He also believes that the worst thing that a leader can do is to pull-out in the middle of the series.
Some believe that a part of du Plessis’ statements had been rooted on the team’s back-to-back losses against England and his current batting form.
As Faf du Plessis remains to be South Africa’s team captain, the team will still prepare for a great comeback on their next match against England. The odds of the game are +170 for South Africa and -204.08 for England. For more cricket odds on other upcoming matches, head over to Betwala.
