The Royal Challengers Bangalore skipper Faf Du Plessis is one of the most consistent players in the IPL. The current orange cap holder had an off season last year but was soon back on his feet scoring runs again. RCB’s wicket-keeper batter Dinesh Karthik has backed Faf Du Plessis and has suggested the South African cricket board pick the batter for the World Cup. South Africa has officially gotten a direct entry to the World Cup.

Faf Du Plessis had announced his test retirement in the year 2021. However, he is yet to make a call on his limited-overs cricket. Despite being in great touch all along Faf Du Plessis has not been a part of the squad for quite some time. In the past, the opener had expressed his desire to represent the team again. With the ODI World Cup to be played in India, Dinesh Karthik believes, this will be the best time for the RCB skipper to make his international comeback.

Dinesh Karthik Wants SA To Pick Faf Du Plessis for the World Cup

Karthik referred to Du Plessis as a brilliant player, stating that he is not surprised by his performance. Further complimenting the Proteas player’s leadership skills. He continued by saying that Faf Du Plessis had been reliable in the previous five years. And had recently had a year in which he was even more reliable, successful, and potent. South Africa is yet to win an ODI World Cup and this year, they can pick up their strongest squad to have a chance at winning the Cup.

“I’m not at all surprised with Faf’s form because I think he’s a terrific player. He’s a very good leader as well. In the last four, or five years of IPL, he’s been very consistent. And he’s just had another year where he’s been even more consistent, even more effective, even more powerful. I think South Africa will be missing a trick if they don’t take him to the World Cup. I think he is ready. He is somebody who can make a difference as a leader, as a batter. So, I genuinely wish Faf Du Plessis says yes when South Africa asks him. Because he will make an impact at that World Cup if he’s there,” Karthik added.
