The owners of LPL franchises are allowed to pick two overseas players as pre-draft players before the commencement of player draft, as a result, Jaffna has selected du Plessis as one of their pre-draft players, a choice which has been approved by Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) today.

The signing of du Plessis could be a great move for Jaffna Kings as the right-hander is in great touch with the bat throughout the just-concluded Indian Premier League where he adjudged as man of the final for his match-winning knock of 86 runs off 59 balls for IPL champions Chennai Super Kings.
