Faf Du Plessis is one of the most flamboyant batsmen in cricketing world. However, the witty side of the South African cricket team captain is a little known. But the response he gave during a Mzansi Super League match toss has left everyone in splits.
After the toss as the presenter asked Plessis about his teammate Hardus Viljoen’s absence from the team, and the reply was hilarious.
Faf Du Plessis is currently captaining the Paarl Rocks in the Mzansi Super League.
Presenter asked why Viljoen was not included in the squad for the encounter against Nelson Mandela Bay Giants at Boland Park.
To this Faf Du Plessis answered, “Hardus Viljoen not playing today because he’s lying in bed with my sister as they got married yesterday.” The reply prompted a laugh from the presenter who had asked the question.
Notably, Proteas pacer Viljoen had been dating du Plessis’ sister, Remi Rhynners, for almost a year. The two got married past Saturday. Hence Viljoen was absent from the game.

30-year-old Viljoen is fast becoming a rising star in T20 leagues across the world. He however has represented South Africa in only one Test, which he played against England in 2016. Besides, Viljoen is also known for his hitting skills, which he might be demonstrating when he plays for Kings XI Punjab in the next year’s IPL.
