South African limited-overs skipper Faf du Plessis has suffered a health scare after being concussed during the ongoing Pakistan Super League in Abu Dhabi. He has been taken to the hospital for further scans.

It all happened while he was fielding for Quetta Gladiators against Peshawar Zalmi. During a fielding attempt between the long-on and long-off boundary off David Miller's hit, his head collided with the knee of his teammate Mohammad Hasnain.

Immediately, Gladiators physio rushed to him and checked upon him as he lay on the field for a few minutes. Finally, however, he managed to get up and walk off the field on his feet. In the meantime, the management stated that he had been taken to a hospital for further scans, reports ESPNCricinfo.

As for the match, the Zalmi managed to put on a whopping total of 197/5, thanks to Miller's 73. In reply, the Gladiators middle-order stumbled, as the side could only manage 136/9.

Du Plessis's injury comes as the second blow for Gladiators after Andre Russell was hit on the helmet off a bouncer from pacer Muhammad Musa against Islamabad United on Friday. Russell, too, was taken to the hospital, while further updates are being awaited on him as well.
