Spectators are the source of massive motivation for players playing on the ground but at times the same spectators become victims of the game. A similar incident took place during the 12th match of Big Bash League when Hurricane’s McDermott smashed a full toss bowl for a six but the ball went on to hit a male spectator, leaving him with a bleeding nose.
It was the 7th over of the second innings when Hobarts’ Dermott smashed a massive six on Andrew Tye’s full toss, but a spectator, in an attempt to catch the ball, got hit on his forehead and fell on the ground. However, when he got up and saw blood dripping on his thigh, it was then he realized that his forehead was bleeding, leaving him and others completely amused. Even commentators were surprised by the incident and were shocked to see the sight.
The video of the incident immediately went viral on social media and has been widely circulated.
