The former South African captain made it plain that he is open to playing for the Proteas in ODIs and T20Is. Even though he declared his retirement from Tests back in early 2021. However, it appears that the selectors and team management saw something else in him. Because he was not even considered for the T20 World Cup in the UAE in 2021. Faf scored 468 runs from 16 games in the IPL 2022. With a strike rate of 127.52, including three half-centuries, his highest score was 96.

In a lopsided match against the eventual runners-up Rajasthan Royals, RCB was eliminated from the second qualifying round. The nomination of their pricing category must fall within the range of gold, silver, and bronze. And the confirmation of their availability for the tournament is a requirement for international players who wish to compete in the BBL. Faf du Plessis may appear in the platinum category, according to reports.
