As the Indian Premier League 2023 (IPL 2023) nears its conclusion, the league stage matches have come to an end. The match between Royal Challengers Bangalore and Gujarat Titans on May 21 marked the final league stage encounter.

In a disappointing turn of events, Gujarat Titans emerged victorious, defeating Royal Challengers Bangalore by 6 wickets and ending RCB’s hopes of qualifying for the playoffs. The defeat left the entire RCB team visibly disheartened, with captain Virat Kohli even seen shedding tears from the dugout. Following the loss, RCB captain Faf du Plessis made a statement regarding stepping down from the captaincy.

Addressing the press conference after the match against Gujarat Titans, Faf du Plessis expressed, “Our team wasn’t at its best this season. To be honest, we were fortunate to witness some commendable performances. However, when we evaluate our overall performance in the 14 matches, it’s clear that we won’t make it to the playoffs as a team. It’s painful, but it’s the truth.”

Reflecting on IPL 2023, it has undeniably been a remarkable season for Faf du Plessis as the captain of RCB. Across 14 matches, he showcased exceptional batting skills, accumulating an impressive total of 730 runs, including eight half-centuries. Currently, he holds the coveted Orange Cap in IPL 2023, symbolizing the highest run-scorer in the tournament.

While RCB’s playoff hopes may have been shattered, du Plessis’s individual performances have been a highlight of the season. As the IPL 2023 draws to a close, fans and cricket enthusiasts eagerly await the upcoming stages of the tournament to witness the thrilling action unfold.
