Faf du Plessis ruled out of remainder of PSL 2021

He suffered a concussion during the Quetta Gladiators' game against the Peshawar Zalmi

Former South African captain Faf du Plessis, who suffered a concussion during the Quetta Gladiators' match against the Peshawar Zalmi on Sunday, was on Wednesday (June 16) ruled out of the remainder of PSL 2021

Du Plessis suffered the concussion following a nasty collision with his Quetta teammate Mohammad Hasnain while trying to save a boundary. He will be flying home to South Africa tonight.

Following the freak accident, the South African batting star stayed on the ground for a few minutes while the team physio attended to him. The 36-year-old eventually got on his feet and walked back to the team dugout before being taken to the hospital for scans.

He later tweeted the same day that he was back from the hospital and "recovering".

"Thank you everyone for all the messages of support. I'm back at the hotel recovering. Have concussion with some memory loss but I will be fine. Hopefully be back on the field soon. Much love," du Plessis had tweeted.

Du Plessis was playing his second game of the PSL upon its resumption. He scored 5 against Islamabad United as the Gladiators lost the match by 10 wickets.

Before the resumption of PSL, du Plessis was playing in the IPL 2021, where he scored 320 runs from seven matches, including four consecutive half-centuries, his form helping Chennai Super Kings to a strong position in the table.

The lucrative league was then suspended due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
