KENT – Kent Cricket on Monday announced the signing of South Africa captain Faf du Plessis for the rest of this year’s Vitality Blast T20 competition.
A proven winner in all forms of the game, the 35-year-old was appointed skipper of the Proteas for T20 matches in April 2013 and subsequently across all formats in 2016.
An Indian Premier League champion, he is one of only 30 men to have scored an International T20 (IT20) century in their career, with 119 runs from only 56 balls against the West Indies in 2015.
The right-hander currently averages 35.86 in IT20s with the bat and has scored centuries in both Test and One Day International (ODI) cricket this year.
His last ODI appearance saw him score 100 against Australia during this year’s ICC Cricket World Cup at Old Trafford, while leading his country.
