New Delhi: In a West Indies-Australia Test match in 2008, Brett Lee almost killed Shivnarine Chanderpaul with a deadly delivery in Jamaica. The batsman survived the ordeal and bravely carried on after the hit to score a hundred. He was lucky. But others were not so lucky, and we have seen heartbreaking injuries in cricket. And we are not even mentioning their names out of respect.
Talking about Chanderpaul's injury - he was batting on 86 and West Indies were 276 for 8. Then a Lee delivery in the 95th over, to be exact off the last ball, on the third day, hit Chaderpaul on the back of the head by a quick bouncer. It floored the West Indian with worried players from both the camps rushing to his side.
Luckily for everyone, Chanderpaul continued, scoring 188, after going through scans.
Lee was involved in another notorious incident when he hit Rahul Dravid with a natty bouncer during the fourth Test of the Border-Gavaskar Series at the SCG in 2004. Despite initial worries, Dravid batted with a bandaged ear.
