He is no longer the captain of the South African cricket team, but Faf du Plessis is still good enough to be part of the team.
He was included in the T20 squad along with fast bowlers Kagiso Rabada and Anrich Nortjé on Monday, who will have three matches against Australia.
Du Plessis, Rabada and Nortje were in the Test squad that played against England, but they were then rested for the one-day and T20 series against England.
Linda Zondi, the national selection boss, says despite the T20 series defeat of 1-2 against the English he is very optimistic about the group of players and he especially believed in the batting.
Although there is a good possibility that AB de Villiers might return, there is no sign of him. It is rumored that he may be able to play for the national team after the Indian Premier League (IPL) in order to make himself available for the T20 World Cup in Australia later this year.
SA coach Mark Boucher said in Centurion on Sunday that he wanted to take the best players to the World Cup and if De Villiers is the best player for the job, he has no doubt that he should be available.
