The man, unnamed was standing at his post when the ball hit him in the face after it ricocheted off the stumps from a shot that came straight down the pitch, in a cricket match in the Ashdod area of Israel, where most of the residents are majorly immigrant Indians

The 60 year-old victim was taken to hospital but could not recover as he died from the injuries from the hit.
