India’s and Bengal fast bowler Ashok Dinda was careened to hospital after the pacer was hit on the head by the ball. Dinda, who was practicing was hit on the head by his teammate batsman Vivek Singh. Both the players were practicing under the watchful eyes of India’s legendary batsman VVS Laxman.
Vivek Singh had taken the screws out of the ball and smashed it straight towards Dinda. However, the right-handed bowler could not evade the ball or could not get his hands behind the ball. In fact, Dinda was able to get fingers to the balls before getting hit. However, the blow was still nasty as the ball was traveling at great speed.
