Updated: May 12, 2019, 03:09 PM ISTChennai Super Kings batsman Faf du Plessis, who is opening the innings for his side, said that this opportunity has helped him grow his game but still feels that his best role is probably at number three.

Even MS Dhoni sometimes bats at 4 or 5," the International Cricket Council (ICC) quoted Du Plessis, as saying, "So the opportunity for me was to open the batting, especially after Michael Hussey left.

Du Plessis and Shane Watson's half-century in the Qualifier 2 helped their side vanquish the Delhi Capitals by six wickets and secure their spot in the Indian Premier League (IPL) final.

"The nature of our whole batting line-up is we haven't been in our best form, because we haven't been playing on a flat wicket all the time.

So that's a real strength of ours just to get through that, and it just frees up all the players," Du Plessis added.Chennai will now face Mumbai Indians for the IPL final in Hyderabad on May 12.
