It has been a turnover for Steve Smith’s side Rising Pune Supergiant in the 10th edition of the Indian Premier League as they consolidated their place in top four after defeating Sunrisers Hyderabad [SRH] by 12 runs. RPS rode on clinical performances by seamer Jaydev Unadkt and all-rounder Ben Stokes to move into second spot in the points table. This was also Hyderabad’s first home loss of the season.
However, after pulling off a important victory over the defending champions,the Proteas batsman Faf du Plessis left the Pune franchise as the right-handed batsman is supposed to join the national team ahead of an ODI series versus England.
The 32-year-old batsman took to social media as he confirmed that he won’t be available for the remaining two league stage games. He said, ” This is what happens when u leave India…cake in your face”.
