Then Watson, now Faf!! Twitter salutes Faf du Plessis for fielding with a bleeding knee against KKR

Faf du Plessis was seen fielding with a bleeding knee during the first innings against the Kolkata Knight Riders. The former South Africa captain had blood on his knee after he took the catch of the KKR skipper at the boundary.

The picture went viral on social media and the fans lauded the player for his commitment. Earlier, Shane Watson batted while his knee was bleeding in the finale of IPL in 2018. CSK were up against Mumbai Indians and the man had almost won a trophy for his team but fell short by a short margin.

Meanwhile, Faf du Plessis is one of the best players of the three-time champions. He has won several matches for the Chennai-based franchise in the cash-rich league. CSK are looking all set to qualify for the playoffs and du Plessis will be important in the crucial matches.
