Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) skipper Faf du Plessis recently completed 4000 runs in his Indian Premier League (IPL) career. The South African ace batter played 128 matches to achieve the milestone, and notably, he is also the IPL Orange Cap holder in the ongoing season.

Faf du Plessis receives a huge milestone

Faf du Plessis reached the feat during the ongoing match number 60 against Rajasthan Royals (RR) at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium in Jaipur.

Chennai Super Kings signed Faf du Plessis in the year 2012, and in his debut season, the opener smacked 398 runs in 13 matches at a strike rate of 130.92. He represented the franchise for ten long years, scoring 2935 runs in the process. He has had an incredible run for the franchise, helping them win three champions during his time. In the year 2021, when CSK won their fourth title in history, du Plessis smashed 633 runs in 16 matches and finished second in the IPL Orange Cap race.

CSK wanted to sign him back in the 2022 IPL mega auction. However, Royal Challengers Bangalore paid INR 7 crore for him and bagged the signing. Soon after getting him on board, Bangalore announced him as their next skipper, and so far, he has done a fantastic job for the franchise.

The Pretoria-born cricketer played 16 matches for RCB in the 2022 edition, scoring 468 runs in the process. In 2023, he has already crossed that mark and is playing some sensational brand of cricket. If the cricketer keeps up with the same form, RCB would hopeful of their chances this season.
