Seventy one year old bowler dies after cricket ball hits his head
London, Jun 14 (ANI): A 71-year-old bowler died after a horrified cricketer's shot hit his head.
Players battled in vain to revive David Wilcockson after he collapsed on the pitch unconscious.
The cricket-mad pensioner was airlifted to a hospital where he clung to life for 13 days.
But he finally died in a coma leaving fellow players of his friendly side shattered last night, The Sun reports.
Retired insurance salesman David was a stalwart of Old Dorkinians Cricket Club, based in Dorking, Surrey.
He joined in 1959 and was the longest serving member. Team-mate Andy Leopold, 44, told how David had played 1,678 matches taking 2,899 wickets and 160 catches. (ANI)
