Australian leg spinner and member of the Quetta Gladiators team Fawad Ahmed is one of the most dedicated players in the world. During his side’s all-important Qualifier, he got smashed by Peshawar Zalmi batsman Imam-ul-Haq and the powerful drive injured his face and he lost two teeth in the process.
The player was all covered in blood when the ball hit on his face and had to be rushed to the nearby hospital for medical treatment.

Shane Watson bowled the final over of the match as his team was short of bowlers, and won the match for his mate who later thanked his fans their wishes and support.

And then came the big statement – Fawad Ahmed still wants to be a part of the grand finale of Pakistan Super League and doesn’t care whether he is in pain or not. His dedication to representing Quetta Gladiators earned him praise from all around the world.
Update on @bachaji23
Fractured jaw, broken teeth and ripped lip. Surgery complete. Tells me he's in heaps of pain but hopes he can play the final with the help of painkillers.
That's commitment. True Gladiator.
