Now its the Policeman who lost his eye with David Miller's Shot... Are there no precautionary measures undertaken in this regard. And how come such situations arise.. Are they not careful (The policeman or the Batsman)...
It is indeed a rare situation but the thing that surprises me is that whether the person in watchman post is not in a position to react or is he busy with some other thoughts. He should have seen the ball.
I know cricket injuries starting from Nari Contractor, the legendary Indian opener with Pankaj Roy to the onfield tragedies of cricket. But this is the first time of this kind Though there are safeguards like closed net from all the three sides are provided.
This is a rare case as I have rarely seen someone directly been hit on an eye. Actually we react so fast when something comes to our eyes. But that's right there should be some precautionary measures to avoid such incident in future.
Policeman should be looking at people considering it is his duty and the batsman is practicing not seeing police but the hands of bowlers no one is guilty of this but precautionary measures like planting of net should be done in the first place to secure bystanders and trespassers.
