'Positive' Faf du Plessis avoids reading too much news
CAPE TOWN: Former South African skipper Faf du Plessis It is avoiding the gloomy coverage of the pandemic to stay positive amid the crisis.
The right-handed hitter said having a positive attitude is very important and he's putting a lot of energy into it.
For me, it's about staying positive. It is something that I feel is very important and I am also putting a lot of energy into it, du Plessis said, quoting sport24.co.za.
As a result, I am trying not to read a lot of negative pieces and generally limit the news I consume. There is a lot of panic out there. We as players also experience a lot of anxiety, there is a fear of the future because I do not know when we will play again, he added.
Du Plessis has won 18 of his 36 tests as captain since replacing AB de Villiers in 2016.
The 35-year-old cricket player has played 65 tests and 143 ODI for South Africa and he has accumulated 3901 and 5507 races, respectively.
