Lahore Qalandars keeper Ben Dunk got injured during a practice session, receives seven stitches

Australian wicketkeeper-batsman Ben Dunk has been seriously injured during practice in the Super League (PSL 2021). Ben’s lips were injured when the ball hit him in the face during practice before the match. As a result, he has seven stitches and will have to take a break from cricket for some time.

The hard-hitting southpaw is a key part of the Qalandars. The PSL is only a few days away, this setback at such a crucial moment is not what the franchise wanted to hear. They are currently third on the points table after winning three games from four matches they played before the tournament came to a grinding halt due to a breach in bio-bubble.

Qalandars, who have yet to win a title in five editions, would seek to carry their fine form from the Karachi leg into the UAE and eventually end their trophy drought.

Ben Dunk was in good form in this season for Qalandars. Regarding Dunk’s unexpected injury, Qalandars CEO Sameen Rana expressed encouraging remarks. Rana has claimed that he is recovering well and that he expects to return to action on June 9 against Islamabad United.

The 34-year-old wicketkeeper-batsman has played five T20I matches for Australia in which he has scored 99 runs. Ben has so far scored 3,374 runs in 157 T20 matches at an average of 24.99. He has 18 fifties to his name with unbeaten 99 runs as the highest score.
