Faf Du Plessis’s Golden Guidance
South African captain, Faf Du Plessis, gave a piece of advice to the Aussie teammates to maintain a distance from Virat Kohli. As he is well versed about the aggressive behavior of Indian Captain, he ordered the players to give him silent treatment in every possible confrontation during the upcoming matches.
South Africa beat India 2-1 but Kohli emerged as the top run scorer with an aggregate of 286 from three Tests at an average of 47.66.
Du Plessis said, “He’s an amazing player. We gave the silent treatment and he still scored runs in South Africa, but we feel like it was not huge runs he scored the one hundred there in Centurion when the wicket was slow and this was our silent treatment.”
