Cricket was shook by another unfortunate incident when a young Pakistan batsman Zubair Ahmed died after being struck by a bouncer during a domestic match in Mardan. The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) took to social media to announce this sad news. The Twitter release stated “Tragic death of Zubair Ahmed is another reminder that safety gear i.e. helmet must be worn at all times. Our sympathies with Zubair’s family,”.
The incident occurred on August 14, which coincides with Pakistan’s Independence Day.
Zubair featured in 4 List A matches & represented the T20 team Quetta Bears.
Earlier on the same day, Australian vice-captain David Warner retired hurt after being struck in the neck by a lethal bouncer during a warm-up match ahead of the upcoming Bangladesh tour.
A focus on player safety has been the highest priority since the tragic death of Australian batsman Phillip Hughes three years back in 2014.
Hughes, who played twenty six Tests, died from bleeding on the brain in November 2014 after being struck on the lower part of the skull by a rising ball from fast bowler Sean Abbott during a domestic match at the SCC in Sydney.
Hughes however was wearing the prescribed protective head gear but the ball struck him at the back of the head under the helmet.

During the post-race television interviews, Hulkenberg approached Magnussen and sarcastically commended him for being “once again the most unsporting driver”. Things could get any more worse.
