South Africa cricketer Faf du Plessis' met with a scary accident during a Pakistan Super League encounter between Quetta Gladiators and Peshawar Zalmi on Saturday night.
The incident took place while Du Plessis, who plays for the Gladiators, was fielding and in an attempt to save a boundary collided with his teammate Mohammad Hasnain. The impact of the collision was so heavy that the Proteas cricketer had to be rushed to the hospital, and later TV replays confirmed that the 36-year-old ran into Hasnain's knee.
After the incident, Du Plessis laid down on the ground as medical assistance came rushing for the star batsman. Du Plessis then was subsequently removed from the contest and Saim Ayub replaced the South African as a concussion substitute.
Meanwhile, Du Plessis' wife Immari Visser, who has been left heart-broken with the incident, took to Instagram and wrote: "This is killing me right now. Surely he should be checked in hospital?"
Faf and Imari have been married since November 2013, which had AB de Villiers, Graeme Smith and Dale Steyn in their wedding guest list. The couple also have two kids, Amelie and Zoey.
As per latest reports, Du Plessis has returned to the team-hotel after the medical scans.
