VIDEO: Jeet Raval smashes the ball straight on Andrew Ellis’ head; the ball went for six

A bizarre incident took place during a one-day match between Auckland and Canterbury at the Colin Maiden Park, Auckland on Wednesday.


Auckland’s left-handed batsman Jeet Raval nearly killed Canterbury bowler Andrew Ellis with his full-bloodied strike. Raval stepped out against the medium pacer and struck a meaty blow back at him. The bowler, recovering from his follow-through, could barely react to the traveling ball and got hit on his head.

Raval ran towards Ellis to check with him and as doubts about concussion surrounded the bowler, a funny thing happened instead. The ball had ricochetted off Ellis’ head and went for a six over long-on. The umpire signaled a boundary, which was later confirmed that it had actually sailed over the ropes.


Here’s the video:
