BBL: Faf du Plessis is all set for his BBL comeback, nominates himself for the overseas draft


The former South African cricketer, Faf du Plessis has been recently seen in the 15th edition of the Indian Premier League where he led Royal Challengers Bangalore for the first time.

The veteran South African cricketer has nominated himself for the upcoming edition of BBL (Big Bash League), as he was looked in fantastic touch in the recently concluded cash-rich contest.

However, Faf du Plessis nominated himself along with other four overseas cricketers for the overseas draft. Notably, during the 2012 edition of BBL, Faf du Plessis represented Melbourne Renegades.

Faf du Plessis got a chance to play alongside the legendary spinner from Sri Lanka Muttiah Muralidharan and also shared the dressing room with the Australia skipper Aaron Finch.

After that, Faf du Plessis made himself available for this edition as Melbourne Stars posted a picture of him in their jersey. Interestingly, if Melbourne Stars roped the Proteas batter, then he will be representing the side under Glenn Maxwell, as the Australian all-rounder played under him in IPL 2022.

I don’t know if he has enough time to prepare: Ajit Agarkar

Hanuma Vihari - Cheteshwar Pujara

Talking about the upcoming Test match between England and India, the former Indian all-rounder Ajit Agarkar has come up with a statement about the opener for this game.

During a virtual interaction organized by Sony Sports, the former Indian cricketer claimed, "I know KS Bharat got some runs in the warm-up game. The team management will probably have a look at how prepared Mayank Agarwal is after joining the team.

I don’t know if he has enough time to prepare for this one-off Test. With Rohit in isolation, I believe experience will help in opening, whether it is Vihari or Pujara, who has been around for a long time," Agarkar was quoted as saying by CricTracker.

"Vihari has already opened for India a couple of times. So, that would be my pick, one of those two if Mayank doesn’t look quite ready as he didn’t have enough time in the nets and is clearly not going to get any (practice) games now. In my opinion, it’s better to go with a little bit more experience because it is a one-off Test," said Ajit Agarkar.
