Indian Premier League (IPL) 2019 has been interesting in ways more than we can imagine. Whether it’s the team performances or on and off the field chatter, IPL keeps things fascinating for its watchers. While we all have seen related players, especially brothers play for a single team or multiple teams, but, how often have you seen players related to each other because of one’s wife? Well Chennai Super Kings opener in the last match, Faf du Plessis’ sister is the fiance of Kings XI Punjab’s Hardus Viljoen.

Not many knew of this interesting relationship until someone on Twitter disclosed it in a tweet. Both are from South Africa and the fast bowler’s fiance is Rhemi Rynners who happens to be the sister of South African captain Faf du Plessis.

Both South Africans are doing well for their respective teams, in the limited opportunities that they have got this season. du Plessis scored a fifty in his first outing, helping his team win against Viljoen’s Kings XI Punjab. However, Viljoen wasn’t a part of the playing XI in that match.

The pacer has, however, taken four wickets this season and he is already an important member of Kings XI Punjab’s bowling unit.
