Respected cricket broadcaster Zainab Abbas was almost given something painful to cry about during an SA20 match between Mumbai Indians Cape Town and Sunrisers Eastern Cape at Newlands Cricket Stadium.
Abbas was conducting an interview on the boundary when the explosive Marco Jansen hit the ball in her direction. One of the MI Indians fielders dove in a failed attempt to prevent a 'four', sliding into an unsighted Abbas.
There was a moment of concern for her, but she got up like nothing had happened, laughing it all off.

Nortje gets hit by Spidercam
Anrich Nortje's misfortune epitomized South Africa's ongoing disaster three-Test match tour of Australia.
A video showed him being hit on the head by the Spidercam while changing fielding positions on the second day of the Boxing Day Test at the Melbourne Cricket Ground. According to The South African, the fancy camera was flying across the field at head height, before hitting the fiery fast bowler.
The crowd could be heard reacting in shock while a dazed Nortje got off the ground in surprise.
Oliver struck in the face
Wherever he is, Duanne Olivier is nursing a bruised face.
Province batsmen Daniel Smith skied a Tladi Bokako ball sky-high, with Olivier positioning himself to take what appeared to be a difficult catch with the ball likely to be lost in the midday sun. Typically, it did, with a flustered Oliver being hit on the side of the forehead rather painfully.
Thankfully, he got up to continue with the match.
