Francois du Plessis, one of the most powerful batsmen in the South African cricket team, celebrates his birthday today. He made his Test debut against Australia in the year 2012 and scored 78 and a 110 in respective innings.

 

He made his One Day International (ODI) debut against India in a home series in 2011. He scored 60 runs in this match and the selectors included him in the World Cup squad. He also plays for the Chennai Super Kings and till date he has not disappointed his skipper MS Dhoni.

 

He might not be the best batsmen in the South African squad but is one of toughest for sure. Du Plessis is also a terrific fielder. And today, he has all the reasons in the world to celebrate his 30th birthday.
