Big Bash League: Young cricket fan left bloodied after dropping crowd catch in Hobart

One young fan was left bloodied after a crowd catch gone wrong.

Perth: A young fan was left bloodied after he put down a catch in the crowd during the Big Bash League match between Hobart Hurricanes and Perth Scorchers in Hobart on Tuesday.

The incident happened during the 7th over of Hurricanes’ innings against the Perth Scorchers in the ongoing Big Bash League (BBL) 2021-22 when McDermott smashed a full toss bowled by pacer Andrew Tye onto the leg-side.

A fan who made an attempt to catch the ball got hit on his forehead after missing it completely and started bleeding, not realising the same.

As the commentators went talking about how he dropped the catch, the camera panned towards the kid as blood tricked down his face. “Oh no. He’s got a bit of blood. We need some medic. He didn’t even realise,” the commentators said on air.

Fans came to the kid’s assistance calling for medical help. “Hopefully he is all ok. He’s in the hands of the medics. He was surprised wasn’t he.” seven commentator Jason Richardson said. “It can happen, unfortunately, that’s what happens on the hill. He thought he had it,”  Brad Hodge said. The boy was tended to by medics at the ground.

Talking about the game, Mitchell Marsh has continued his blazing form as he smashed his maiden century in the on Tuesday. Marsh, who top-scored for Australia in their epic T20 World Cup final win over New Zealand scored a tremendous unbeaten 100 off just 60 deliveries in the ongoing BBL.
