Faf du Plessis ruled out of IPL with broken finger

Pune, April 28 (IANS) Rising Pune Supergiants (RPS) batsman Faf du Plessis on Thursday said he has been ruled out of the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) with a broken finger.

The South African tweeted about his injury on Thursday.

“And so my IPL tournament unfortunately comes to an end. Broken finger and out for 6 weeks. Thanx India and @RPSupergiants it’s been fun,” du Plessis posted on Twitter.

The 31-year-old is his franchise’s second highest run-getter with 206 runs in six games. He has also scored two 50s in the competition but both came in a losing cause.

This is the second injury jolt that Pune have faced. A few days back, England batsman Kevin Pietersen was ruled out with a hamstring injury.
