The Saint Lucia Kings are undergoing a leadership change due to Captain Faf du Plessis’ departure to address a nagging tennis elbow injury. After suffering from this condition for the past few months, the South African will have surgery as advised by medical professionals.
Du plessis had been a consistent presence in the team’s leadership since joining the Kings. His aggressive batting style at the top of the order played a crucial role in the Kings’ performance, and his absence will be felt.
Despite the less-than-ideal circumstances of his departure, Du Plessis expressed confidence in his successor. New Zealander Colin Munro is set to be the new opening partner alongside Johnson Charles, while all-rounder Sikandar Raza will take over the captaincy. Du Plessis believes that the team is in capable hands with these changes.
“I know that the team is in great hands and also the replacement Collin Munro is a very good player.” the out-going skipper said.
The incoming captain, Sikandar Raza, is experienced in leadership, having achieved success both internationally and in franchise cricket. He is enthusiastic about his new role and anticipates the team’s success, attributing it to the high-quality players in the squad.
“It’s quite humbling for Saint Lucia Kings to trust me with a big responsibility, but I am very relaxed and humble about it only because we’ve got eighteen boys, that are so focused and so determined to do well” Raza said
