Profile

Francois du Plessis, known as Faf, could well have joined the South African player drain to England when he signed a Kolpak deal with Lancashire in 2008. However, he was called up to the national side after a stunning season in the MTN40 competition in South Africa in 2010-11, when he topped the run charts with 567 runs from 10 matches, including three centuries. He made his debut in the home series against India before the World Cup, making 60 in his first innings, and was included in South Africa's World Cup squad - although he was part of a misfiring middle order that was one cause of South Africa's quarter-final loss to New Zealand.
