I believe I can make a comeback in international cricket

Faf du Plessis last played for the South African team in the T20 International format in 2020. Since then, he has continuously featured in T20 leagues across the world.

We’ve talked about this for the last few years. I also discussed this with the new coach Rob Walter. I also continually work on my fitness so that I can stay completely fit to play. As you get older, you need to work on your body so that you don’t face Achilles tendon or other age-related problems.

Faf has shown amazing performances with the bat in the last two IPL seasons.
