Faf du Plessis Blamed IPL For His Team’s Poor Performance In ICC World Cup

South Africa has become the second team to use the exit door of the ongoing ICC World Cup campaign. After losing its last match to Pakistan by 49 runs on Sunday at Lord’s Cricket Ground, the team captain Faf du Plessis started playing the blame game. SA skipper du Plessis blamed the Indian Premier League (IPL) for his team’s poor performance.

He said that his team was not fresh when they came to the World Cup, especially his ace player Kagiso Rabada. At a press conference, du Plessis said, “So I don’t think it’s not necessarily just the IPL, but it was important for a few guys to rest; and the fact that they didn’t mean that they — you know, they came into the tournament not fresh. That’s not an excuse; that’s just a fact. And KG (Kagiso Rabada) is — you can see that his pace is probably a little bit down from where he normally is.”

He further added that he tried to stop Rabada from playing the IPL.

However, people did not like the South African captain’s statement and pointed out that he also played in IPL with Chennai Super Kings. He was in the game till the very end as his team went to the finals.

Twitterians slammed and trolled du Plessis for blaming IPL for his own mistake as he himself was a part of the IPL. People even pointed out that other players also played the IPL but they are performing well.
