South Africa batsman Faf du Plessis said he is at the end of a “tough three months” after suffering a concussion, as the 37-year-old aims to return to action.

After failing to recover from the concussion, he missed the inaugural Hundred competition in England.

But Du Plessis is now confident of getting back on the field for Saint Lucia Kings, the franchise he will captain in the Caribbean Premier League.

“It has been a tough three months,” Du Plessis said.

“I didn’t expect it to take this long and I also didn’t expect it to be quite as severe. But I feel like I am at the end of it, which really is pleasing for myself.

“There’s a lot of cricket this year that I still need to play. As I mentioned earlier, missing three months of cricket is not something that is very nice. So I am just really looking forward to getting back out on the field.”

Saint Lucia Kings begin their league campaign against two-time champions Jamaica Tallawahs.
