Australian cricketer Cameron White was lucky to escape injury after he was hit with a ball during the first game of the JLT Cup in Townsville.
The former Australian hitter, who represented Victoria in Sunday's game, had only four balls when he picked up a Billy Stanlake projector.
Stanlake of Queensland, which can reach speeds of up to 150 km / h, delivered the illegal bowl, which appeared to hit the 35-year-old helmet in the hull or throat.

God, why did not people offer more urgent help? And why did not the referee send the bowler right away? And why the bowler did not seem very worried or very sorry? One person wrote.
& # 39; How is it that an international professional beats such a bad ball! Very dangerous at that pace and well done to white by evasive action. This could have been unpleasant, "said another person.

The concern for white comes after the death of Australian cricketer Phillip Hughes, who died three days before turning 26 after receiving a blow to the head with a ball.
Hughes was hit in the back of the head by a ball thrown by bowler Sean Abbott in 2014, and he never recovered from the devastating head injury.
After collapsing on the field, Hughes was taken to St Vincent's Hospital and placed in an induced coma, but tragically died 48 hours later.
