In a pleasing development for the entire cricket universe, Faf du Plessis has confirmed that he will be fine soon.
Faf du Plessis collided with his teammate Mohammad Hasnain on the field, which resulted in a concussion. The officials took du Plessis to the hospital soon, but he is back in the team's hotel now.
After recovering a little, Faf du Plessis gave an update on his health to fans on Twitter. He expressed his gratitude to the fans who were praying for recovery and wrote:
"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."
Faf du Plessis suffered this injury during the PSL 2021 match between Quetta Gladiators and Peshawar Zalmi.
Since the South African batsman was unfit to bat in the second innings, the match officials allowed Quetta to use Saim Ayub as du Plessis' concussion substitute.
