In a scary development in the cricketing world, former South Africa captain Faf du Plessis was rushed to the hospital after he collided with Mohammad Hasnain during a PSL match on Saturday.
The incident took place during the 7th over of Peshawar’s innings in PSL 2021 where batsman David Miller played a shot towards the long-on boundary while Faf and Hasnain both ran towards the ball.
Du Plessis’s head hit Hasnain’s knee and the South Africa cricketer fell on the ground. Faf du Plessis, according to Pakistan media reports, has been shifted to a hospital immediately for further scans. Here is the video:
Gladiators were playing Peshawar Zalmi on Saturday and du Plessis was replaced in the XI by Saim Ayub as a concussion substitute. Du Plessis took no further part in the match even as Peshawar Zalmi won by 61 runs.
Quetta Gladiators won the toss and opted to field. David Miller (73) and Kamran Akmal (59) smashed half centuries as Peshawar Zalmi posted 197 for 5.
In reply, Quetta Gladiators suffered a middle-order collapse and despite Sarfaraz Ahmed’s unbeaten 36 off 28, they were restricted to 136 for 9 in their 20 overs.
Pakistan Super League (PSL) 2021 was resumed last week after it was postponed earlier this year due to COVID-19 cases among players.
