He conceded that it was a privilege to spend time with him. Faf went on to say that MS is a relaxed guy like him. Further, he even revealed that he was different from his idea of captaincy.
RCB captain Faf du Plessis will have a few challenges
For Faf, it will be a challenging task to do well at RCB. The batting line-up does have a few loopholes and the franchise has historically not started well in a competition. Nevertheless, the team has a good bowling line-up and this will be the plus point for the franchise.
