NEW DELHI: Quetta Gladiators‘ batsman Faf du Plessis suffered a concussion in a freak fielding accident after colliding with teammate Mohammad Hasnain during the Pakistan Super League match against the Peshawar Zalmi in Abu Dhabi on Saturday.
The South African was taken to the hospital for a precautionary checkup.
The collision took place in the 7th over of Peshawar’s innings when David Miller played down the ground off Mohammad Nawaz. Both fielders ran towards the ball with du Plessis diving to his right to stop the ball and ending up crashing his head into Hasnain’s knee.

Du Plessis could not come to bat as Quetta suffered 61-run defeat against Peshawar.
Left-handed Miller hit 73 off 46 balls and West Indian Rovman Powell provided an ideal flourish with a quickfire 43 off 19 balls to propel Peshawar to 197-5.
Quetta skipper Sarfaraz Ahmed top-scored in the reply with 36, but his team lost wickets at regular intervals against the pace trio of Mohammad Irfan (3-27), Umaid Asif (2-17), and captain Wahab Riaz (2-20) to fall well short of the target at 136/9.
