During a recent Big Bash League (BBL) game, a fan got hit in the face by a ball that resulted in a six. Surely it was very hurtful for that fan but his spirit remained unbroken as he returned with the ice pack and refreshing beverage.

Jimmy Peirson

That incident happened during the 17th over of Brisbane Heat’s innings against Hobart Hurricanes at Hobart on 29 January. On 16.1 overs of that innings, Heat’s wicketkeeper-batsman Jimmy Peirson was batting and facing the left-arm pacer James Faulkner while his shot went to over long-on for a sixer. It traveled to the on-field spectators while one spectator failed to stop the ball properly and got a hurtful hit in his face.

The heat had the poor start in that game after they were forced to bat first. Struggling on 27/4, Alex Ross and Jimmy Peirson guided the team for a fighting total. While Ross scored 62 off 35 balls (8 fours and only six), Peirson played the knock off 50 runs off 48 balls (3 fours and 2 sixes) before losing his wicket in the last ball of that innings. Heat managed to score 145/6 in 20 overs.

In reply, Hurricanes lost their opener and the skipper Matthew Wade (12 runs) at the very early stage but they didn’t face any further difficulty as they comfortably chased that target in just 14.2 overs after losing the only wicket. Another opener D’Arcy Short and the no.3 batsman Caleb Jewell provided a brilliant 132-run unbroken partnership for the second wicket as Short remained not out on 68 off 41 balls (8 fours and only six) and Jewell was batting on 61 off 38 balls (8 fours and only six).
