The incident happened on the first ball of the 17th over when Pierson walked towards the off-side to hit a Faulkner delivery in the midwicket region. With proper timing on the ball, the right-handed batsman cleared the leg-side boundary with ease. However, a spectator’s attempt of catching the ball ended up hitting him on the face. Fortunately, there wasn’t any major injury.

The injury could have been lethal if the spectator doesn’t see the ball coming towards him. The crazy fan, who was hit by the ball later returned with an ice pack and a beer can.

The BBL|08 has already been witness to some extraordinary events on-field. From strange run-outs to Aston Turner being awarded a six for hitting the stadium roof, there have been several entertaining moments in the glitzy T20 tournament.
