Gautam Gambhir is the former India opener.
The last season of Chennai Super Kings was very bad. She could not make it to the playoffs. This was the first time in the history of IPL that Chennai did not reach the playoffs. But this season the team has made a great comeback and has become the first team to reach the playoffs. This season the team has performed well. Its opener Faf du Plessis has played an important role in this. Du Plessis has shown the best of his bat and is scoring runs continuously. Seeing his batting, former India opener Gautam Gambhir has made a big deal. Gambhir has said that du Plessis has performed better than the expectations. Gambhir has said that he never thought that South African batsmen would be such dangerous batsmen in T20.
Gambhir has said that du Plessis has performed brilliantly as a T20 cricketer. Talking to the website ESPNcricinfo, Gambhir said, “Honestly if you ask me, yes they have performed better than the expectations. I never thought he was such a dangerous batsman in T20. Yes, he has scored runs for CSK but he has never had the same impact as Shane Watson, he was a batsman who scored 50 runs in 40 balls but he did not bother the bowlers of the opposition team that much. He was not a match winner. If Watson used to score runs, then 100 off 60 balls, he used to score like this. Du Plessis has definitely exceeded expectations.”
CPL’s form helped
Du Plessis was playing in the CPL before coming to the IPL. Gambhir feels that his form in the CPL helped du Plessis in the IPL. He said, “He was in excellent form in the CPL as well. Those who come to IPL by playing in any league, then they have more chances to do better in IPL. If you have runs in your account then it is always good. There is no substitute for experience. With experience, Faf knows how to use it if you are in good form. Once your form is gone, it is difficult to get it back. Look what’s going on with Eoin Morgan.”
Have a blast in IPL 2021
Du Plessis is in strong form in the current season of IPL. He is currently at number two in the list of highest run-scorers this season. He has 546 runs in 14 matches. He has scored runs at an average of 45.50 and during this his strike rate has been 137.53. Chennai’s team will also expect runs from Du Plessis in the playoffs.
