Faf du Plessis century, Freedom's flying start sullied by rain

Across the PowerPlay and the passing overs, Marco Jansen was targetted by du Plessis who completed his exposition with 12 fours and five sixes. Travis Head and Steve Smith were up for the precarious undertaking in front of them, flagging their expectation in the second over from Naveen ul Haq where they joined to crush 17 runs. Smith took on the bowlers in the principal several overs, while Head partook in a repreive when Dwayne Bravo dropped a sitter at mid-on. The daring left-hander then rebuffed the bowling side by descending vigorously on Hardie by crushed two fours and two sixes - both over profound square leg - in the fourth finished. Just a single conveyance was conceivable in the fifth over - a no-ball - before downpour constrained the players inside and wouldn't yield. The groups consequently, shared a point each.
