Faf du Plessis continued his great run of form, scoring 87* in the Super Kings’ 10-wicket victory over the Kings XI Punjab.
Du Plessis came into this match with scores of 58*, 72, 43 and 22 and Sunday’s knock takes him to second on the tournament’s leading run-scorer’s list.
KXIP’s batting innings was anchored by the tournament’s leading batsman KL Rahul. The Indian’s 63 came off 52 deliveries, sharing valuable partnerships with Mayank Agarwal (26), Mandeep Singh (27) and Nicholas Pooran, who’s 33 came off just 17 deliveries.
Ultimately the score was no match for a Du Plessis-led charge.
