Quetta Gladiators batsman Faf du Plessis suffered an injury in the Pakistan Super League (PSL) after which he complained of losing some memory.
Former Dave Plessis clashed with Muhammad Hasnain in an attempt to save the boundary during a match against Peshawar Zalmi in Abu Dhabi on Saturday.
The 36-year-old batsman collapsed on the ground and was taken to hospital after an initial examination by a Gladiator’s physio. However, the former South African captain has now confirmed that he is feeling better and fit for the next match.
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. ❤️
