Great to have too many options - Faf Du Plessis
Great to have too many options - Faf Du Plessis

South Africa are one of the serious contenders for the upcoming ICC World T20 in India.  The Proteas have peaked at the right time and their 2-0 series victory over England is just an indication of their strength with the tournament barely three weeks away. South Africa also have too many options in their squad and it is always a good headache to have.

That is what South Africa’s T20 skipper Faf Du Plessis said after his side won the second T20I against England at Johannesburg in fine style. “It’s not a headache, it’s great to have options,” Du Plessis said. “I’d like to have AB to the top so there is only one spot.” With De Villiers stamping his authority at the top, it will indeed be difficult for Quinton De Kock to fit in the side despite scoring effortlessly off late.

“It’s always tough when you’re playing your last game, you’re already thinking about going home and you’re 1-0 down in the series,” he said. “But for us, you always want to imprint something on a team, so that when they meet you again, they will remember the result,” said Du Plessis about the second T20I, which was the final fixture for England’s long tour of South Africa.

Earlier in the game, England had a terrible collapse thanks to some exceptional bowling from South Africa. “To bring it back like we did with those seven wickets is unheard of in Twenty20 cricket,” Du Plessis said. “That’s something we pride ourselves on now, having great options at the death.”
