Cape Town - They say anything can happen in cricket and that proved true once again on Wednesday during a bizarre incident in a New Zealand domestic match.
In a List A fixture in Auckland, bowler Andrew Ellis was smashed on the head by a shot from batsman Jeet Raval.
What happened next, though, was extraordinary.
Raval had hit the ball so hard that it bounced off Ellis' head - and went for SIX!
The umpire had initially signalled a four, but after reviewing the decision it became clear that it had in fact sailed over the ropes for a maximum.
Ellis, meanwhile, was taken off the field for a concussion test - which he passed.
"Whenever anybody gets hit in the head, your immediate concern is for the person, and I was worried Andrew had hurt himself," Raval was quoted as saying on Cricinfo.
"But, thankfully, it soon looked like he hadn't been injured by what had seemed a nasty blow. He's a true Cantab, a very tough nut, and it was a relief for me to see him carry on and complete the game without any visible effects."
