Du Plessis commits to play all three formats for SA

CAPE TOWN – Former South Africa captain Faf du Plessis has committed to playing for his country in all three formats of the game in the 2020-21 season, a boost for a Test side that lacks experience and depth in the batting lineup. The 35-year-old relinquished the captaincy in the limited overs formats to Quinton de Kock, and the team will also have a new Test skipper for their tour of West Indies, which is still scheduled to start in late July. Du Plessis says the lack of cricket due to the COVID-19 pandemic, which has seen the Indian Premier League postponed, has reignited his desire to stay in the international arena. He will make himself available for future One-Day International series having not featured in the 50-over format since the 2019 World Cup in England. “I still love playing for the Proteas. I still see myself adding huge value,” he said in an interview released by Cricket South Africa on Monday. “I am extremely motivated and keen to play in all three formats.
