Faf du Plessis crossed the 1000 Test runs threshold in the ongoing Test match between Sri Lanka and South Africa. Du Plessis has been the fifth fastest to reach this landmark, preceded by Graeme Smith, AB de Villiers, Eddie Barlow and Shaun Pollock.
Du Plessis has reached the landmark in just his 15th Test match. The South African who made an impressive debut scoring an unbeaten 110 to save a Test match, has displayed grit and determination throughout his career. His fielding skills too are quit impressive, and he has taken several acrobatic catches for the Proteas.
