Rising Pune Supergiants batsman Faf du Plessis has been ruled out for the rest of the Indian Premier League (IPL) after he broke his finger.

Du Plessis confirmed the news via Twitter, adding that he will be out of action for six weeks, which means that he may miss South Africa’s ODI tri-series against Australia and the West Indies in the Caribbean in June.

The South African’s injury is a major blow for the Supergiants as he was their second-highest run-scorer with 206 runs at an average of 34.33 in six matches.

Furthermore, his injury comes just a few days after the Supergiants lost former England batsman Kevin Pietersen to a calf injury.
