Faf du Plessis is currently the leading run-scorer in IPL 2023 and the only player to amass 500+ runs in the tournament so far. The RCB skipper has scored 511 runs in 10 games with 5 fifties at an exceptional average of 56.78 and a strike rate of 157.72.

“I have really been quite intentional about trying to get hundreds. Finding gears I can work through that mid innings period and try to get an innings as we can get 75 plus,” Faf du Plessis stated about his urge to score hundreds during RCB Bold Diaries.

I have worked a lot on changing gears during the innings: Faf du Plessis

“In the past, I always felt like I had a decent attacking game but I felt like there was another gear in terms of taking your strike rate from 130 to 150. At least sometimes 160 to 170 so I have worked on that a lot. It is also important for me to play as much cricket as possible just to stay on top of my game,” the RCB skipper discussed about his strike rate.

Faf du Plessis has remained amongst the runs right since his IPL debut but is yet to score a ton in the cash-rich league and clearly aims to hit one in IPL 2023. However, he has smashed 5 T20 centuries including one in T20 Internationals.

With his positive intent, the RCB skipper has set the tone for his side in most of the games in IPL 2023. RCB will now face Mumbai Indians in their next game at the Wankhede Stadium on May 9 and the batting friendly conditions there will provide him with an opportunity to get a big score for his side.

Royal Challengers Bangalore have done pretty decent till now in IPL 2023 abd have got 5 victories. Faf du Plessis has made the job for RCB middle order easier with the kind of foundation he has laid on a regular basis.
