A strange incident happened in the qualifying match between West Indies and Scotland at Bellerive Oval in Hobart. A small child on the stands suddenly fell in front of the railing.
The child was playing on the railing behind the advertisement board. Then he looked forward and lost his balance. He fell down on his head. He was raised by his father. There was no injury to the child.
