South Afria skipper Faf Du Plessis hilariously trolled his teammate cum brother-in-law Hardus Viljoen during a toss interview in the ongoing Mzansi Super League.

Du Plessis, 35, who is currently in-charge of Paarl Rocks as the team's captain was about to face Nelson Mandela Bay Giants at Boland Park. Du Plessis lost the toss and his side were asked to bat first.

In the toss when the Paarl Rocks skipper was asked about team changes, Faf took a dig at Hardus. "Hardus Viljoen not playing today because he’s lying in bed with my sister as they got married yesterday," said Du Plessis while chuckling.

Hardus Viljoen got married to Faf Du Plessis' sister Rhemi on December 7. Viljoen donned for Kings XI Punjab last season where he picked seven wickets from six matches for the Northern franchise.

Paarl Rocks won the match by 12 runs, with Tabraiz Shamsi adjourned as the man of the match for his 2/25. Paarl Rocks lead the points table with 27 points at the end of the league stage.
