 Faf du Plessis will lead South Africa in all the three formats of the game, announced the board of directors Cricket South Africa (CSA). Du Plessis takes the place of AB de Villiers, who resigned as the ODI skipper a few weeks ago. Du Plessis was in charge when Proteas were hammered by England when they lost the Test series 3-1. Currently, the Proteas skipper is the man that's leading the pack in the World XI against Pakistan.

"Congratulations to Faf on his appointment as the natural successor to the ODI leadership," commented CSA Chief Executive, Haroon Lorgat.

"He has established himself as one of the best leaders in world cricket and this was reflected in his appointment as the captain of the World XI currently engaged in the T20 Series against Pakistan," he added.

Du Plessis' first assignment as South Africa's captain in all formats will be a home series against Bangladesh later this month, which consists of two Tests, three ODIs and three T20Is.
