Faf du Plessis stroked a 59-ball 86 to propel the Chennai Super Kings to 192/3 against the Kolkata Knight Riders in IPL 2021 final in Dubai on Friday. Du Plessis narrowly missed the Orange cap to his fellow opener Ruturaj Gaikwad who became the youngest in IPL history to claim the honour.
Faf du Plessis reserved his best for the final in a highly impressive IPL 2021 campaign, giving Kolkata Knight Riders a run around with a 59-ball 86. His innings included seven fours and three sixes, and took his season tally to 633, marginally behind his opening partner Ruturaj Gaikwad, who finished with 635 runs at 45.36.
Sunil Narine was the pick of the bowlers for KKR, returning 2/26 from four overs.
Interestingly, KKR is the only team to have successfully chased down a 190-plus target in an IPL final, having achieved the feat in each of their two appearances in 2012 and 2014 respectively.
Take a bow!
IPL 2021 Orange Cap winner for a reason!

Ruturaj: No I want him to hit a six so that team gets six extra runs.
