Former South African cricket captain Faf du Plessis said he is suffering from memory loss following a sickening collision while fielding during a match in the United Arab Emirates.
Du Plessis suffered concussion after crashing head first into the legs of a fellow fielder, Pakistan’s Mohammad Hasnain, while diving to stop a boundary during the Pakistan Super League match between his team, the Quetta Gladiators, and Peshawar Zalmi in Abu Dhabi on Saturday.

Du Plessis was taken to hospital for checks and later tweeted that he was okay, but was suffering from memory loss.
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. ❤️
