Abu Dhabi: South African star player Faf du Plessis suffered a nasty collision while playing in the Pakistan Super League (PSL) at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium here on Saturday.
Playing for Quetta Gladiators against Peshawar Zalmi, Faf collided with Pakistan’s Mohammad Hasnain while diving to stop a boundary in the 7th over of Peshawar Zalmi’s innings. Du Plessis’ head hit Hasnain’s knee before the South Africa cricketer fell on the ground.
Du Plessis lay on the ground for a few minutes while the Gladiators physio attended him, but eventually got on his feet to walk back into his team’s dugout. According to media reports in Pakistan, Du Plessis has been shifted to a hospital for further scans.
