South African skipper Faf du Plessis decided to have some fun at the toss in the first T20I against Zimbabwe. Faf du Plessis who returned to the captaincy helm after missing out in the ODI series asked JP Duminy to flick the coin for him. In fact, both the talisman batsmen celebrated the toss win by doing a high-five.

Thus, it was an entertaining start to the match. JP Duminy had led South Africa in the three-match ODI series against Zimbabwe in the absence of Faf du Plessis. The South African skipper took to his Instagram handle as he said that he loves what he does. However, du Plessis also believes it is imperative to have some fun especially in the shortest format of the game.

Cricket is my first love. I want to be a wordsmith. I want to weave magic with my words.
