Brendon McCullum survives nasty on-field collision — VIDEO

New Delhi: Former New Zealand skipper Brendon McCullum on Wednesday survived a nasty collision during Brisbane Heat-Perth Scorchers Big Bash League (BBL) match at Woolloongabba, Brisbane.

It happened off the third ball of the 9th over of Perth Scorchers' innings, bowled by Ben Cutting to Michael Klinger.

The Scorchers skipper played a lofted shot but Joe Burns, from mid-on, and McCullum, from mid-off, went for the catch, and in the process, ended up colliding near the boundary.

The ball, however, spilled for a six after hitting Burn's palm. Luckily, both the players survived injury scare.

Batting first, Scorchers rode on Klinger's 81 off 41 balls to post 156 for 5. In reply, Heat had already lost McCullum who hit 15 inside the first four overs.
