New Delhi: Faf du Plessis became the toss cricketing world after playing an epic knock in the fourth ODI match against Sri Lanka on Tuesday at Cape Town.
The 32-year-old hit 185 off 141 balls to help Proteas post a massive 367, batting first. They won the match by 40 runs, and took a 4-0 lead in the five-match series.
In his 212 minute stay in the centre, the right-handed batsman hit 16 fours and three sixes.
But a gracious Newlands crowd stood in unison and vowed to du Plessis. Here’s the video:
He, however, failed to break Gary Kirsten’s record of highest individual ODI score by a South African batsman.
The former India coach hit an unbeaten 188 against United Arab Emirates in a 1996 World Cup match at Rawalpindi.
