Faf du Plessis ruled out of IPL with broken finger

Pune: 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. IANS
