As a result, it was literally not possible to come to terms with the 37-year-old cricketer. As of now, he is no longer contracted with Cricket South Africa. It will be interesting to see when he will be back into national reckoning.

Faf is deemed as one of the top batsmen in T20 cricket and his stats speak huge volumes. Having played 50 games for the national cricket team, he scored 1,528 runs at an average of 35.53, including 1 century and 10 half-centuries to his name.
