Basnahira Cricket Dundee top-order batsman Rilee Rossouw who was hit on the nose by a Lasith Malinga bouncer in today’s (25) SLPL game against Ruhuna Royals has received three stitches.
According to Basnahira CD spokesman Duleep Mendis, South African Rossouw was rushed to the hospital after being hit by a bouncer that travelled through the wiser of his headgear.
“He looks fine after being treated. Since all our first round games are over Rossouw will have time to rest and recover. He will probably return to South Africa in a couple of days,” Mendis said.
Rossouw played three games in the ongoing SLPL competition and scored 20, 44 and 31 not out against Wayamba United, Uthura Rudras and Ruhuna Royals respectively.
After making a steady start Rossouw’s team was hampered by his injury and lost the match by four wickets.
