South Africa batsman Faf du Plessis suffered a nasty collision with Quetta Gladiator teammate Mohammad Hasnain on Saturday, during the PSL 6 match in Abu Dhabi. The incident occurred in the match against Peshawar Zalmi, during the seventh over of the innings, when du Plessis dived full stretch to save a boundary.
After Hasnain’s knee hit du Plessis, the latter fell on the ground. After the collision, the latter was shifted to the hospital.
A physiotherapist immediately came to the ground and checked the West Indies star for any kind of injury. After taking a couple of minutes, Russell resumed batting. However, he couldn’t stand on the field for long and lost his wicket on the very next ball. On the fourth delivery, Russell top-edged Musa’s delivery to Mohammad Wasim Jr while trying to play a pull shot.
Russell’s injury aggravated as he had to be stretchered off the ground. The 34-year-old was later taken for scans in an ambulance. He has been ruled out of Quetta Gladiators’ next game against Peshawar Zalmi on June 12, Saturday.
