Video: Faf du Plessis’ hilarious reply behind Viljoen’s absence in MSL 2019
South Africa skipper Faf du Plessis hit the headlines quite recently for his most honest reply when he was asked a question by reporter ahead of Mzansi Super League (MSL) 2019 game against Nelson Mandela Bay Giants. Faf du Plessis left everyone in stitches with his hilarious response to a question about why his teammate Hardus Viljoen was sitting out of the game.
At the toss, Paarl Rocks’ captain Du Plessis spoke about his team and the plans of approaching the game with a positive perspective. When he asked about the changes in the playing XI, Du Plessis, as a part of team news said that fast bowler Viljoen won’t be playing.
He didn’t stop just there as he went on to give a detailed explanation as to why Hardus Viljoen won’t be playing.
“Hardus Viljoen not playing today because he’s lying in bed with my sister as they got married yesterday,” said Du Plessis. Soon after this honest reply, the fans, commentators and whoever heard started laughing.

It should be noted that Viljoen tied the knot with Du Plessis’ sister identified as Remi Rhynners on Saturday, whom he was dating for almost a year.
“Viljoen di wedding! 🤩Best wishes on this wonderful journey @Hardus_Vilj and Rhemi Rynners, as you build your new innings together ♥,” Kings XI Punjab took to Twitter to convey best wishes for the couple.
