PostSubject: Ball smashes commentary box as commentator injured   Wed May 04, 2011 11:48 pm

Cricket commentator Edward Bevan has come closer to the action than he would have liked during an English county match between Glamorgan and Somerset in Taunton.

The BBC pundit was left shaken and bruised after a cricket ball smashed through his commentary box window.

Bevan, who was hit in the back, was unable to continue in his commentary role.

"It hit me on the back and I was quite shaken for a while," the BBC's website quoted him as saying.

"There's a bruise there this morning - in fact I couldn't carry on."

Bevan said it was the third such incident of his commentary career.

"It's the third time it's happened now - twice in the little box we used to have in Cardiff, not the palatial building we have now, and yesterday of course, which is probably the worst commentary box in the country," he told the BBC.

But Bevan said it could have been a lot worse had he not moved after losing sight of the ball.

"As I turned so it wouldn't hit my face or head, it hit me in the small of the back, which wasn't nice," he said.

"Had I stayed where I was, the consequences would have been much worse."

Somerset's Peter Trego hit the ball which struck Bevan, but the broadcaster had only kind words for the batsman who went on to score a century.

"Apparently when the ball went through the window, he [Trego] stood down and put his fist through the air as if to say 'I've been trying to do that for years and I've done it at last'," Bevan said.

What a shame! Who could have attacked him in such a vicious way? It once happened here in Argentina, some 10 years ago. We must cut off the emission for the speaker has been hurt! Ranting mad

It was an accident, the batsman out in the middle hit it.
The rule is if you hit it out the oval without the ball hitting the ground, you get six runs.
