During the 19th match of Pakistan Super League (PSL) 2021, former South Africa skipper Faf du Plessis suffered a nasty collision at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi on Saturday (June 12).
Playing for Quetta Gladiators against Peshawar Zalmi, Du Plessis collided with Mohammad Hasnain in an attempt to save a boundary.
The incident, which happened in the 7th over of Zalmi's innings, saw Du Plessis's head hitting Hasnain's knee and the Proteas cricketer fell on the ground.
According to Pakistan media reports, Du Plessis was taken to hospital for scans and he returned to the team hotel after a check-up for concussion. He took no further part in the match and Saim Ayub replaced him as a concussion substitute.
Faf du Plessis joined Quetta Gladiators for the second phase of PSL 6, which resumed on June 9 in Abu Dhabi after being suspended in March due to positive Covid-19 cases in the bio-bubbles.
