On Sunday, in the ongoing fourth match of South Africa vs England Test series 2020, South African fielder Faf Du Plessis took a stunner to dismiss English player Joe Root at Johannesburg. Meanwhile, after losing two back-to-back test matches against England at home, again South Africa is struggling at Johannesburg as England team has been leading in the second innings by 465 runs.
Despite taking a stunning catch on Sunday, skipper Plessis is currently having the toughest time of his career. Recently he has been removed from the ODI’s captaincy post and also things are not looking good for him as well in test matches. In ongoing test series against England at home, the Proteas have already lost 2 matches and in the last match of the series again they are struggling.
