South Africa Twenty20 captain Faf du Plessis has been rested for the third and final T20I game against West Indies in Durban. He scored the second fastest t20 international hundred in previous match but failed to take his team towards the winning end. Faf had been facing long-term hip injury hence he is given rest to keep himself fit for the 2015 world cup.
Proteas team manager Mohammed Moosajee said, “Faf has been rested for the last T20 as a precautionary measure ahead of a busy ODI period over the next three months. He has a longstanding hip niggle and any amount of rest will be beneficial to him in the long run.”
Faf du Plessis scored 119 runs in the second t20 match and became first South African batsman to score century in all formats of cricket. Proteas team already lost the three match series by 2-0 and last match will be played on 14 Jan.
Justing Ontong to lead South Africa T20 side in tomorrow’s game.
