South Africa star Faf du Plessis will turn up for Peshawar Zalmi in the upcoming playoffs of the Pakistan Super League (PSL). The right-handed batsman is one of the 21 foreign stars  who have confirmed their participation in the remaining four matches of the tournament which was postponed in March in the wake of the coronavirus outbreak.

The remaining games of PSL 2020 will be played in Karachi on November 14, 15 and 17. Faf du Plessis will be playing in Pakistan’s premier T20 tournament for the very first time. He will represent Peshawar Zalmi as a replacement player for Kieron Pollard who will be in New Zealand with West Indies.
