Young child falls off the railing –

The matches at Hobart at the Bellerive Oval have a vast mass of grass banks. The qualifying matches between Scotland, West Indies, Zimbabwe and Ireland were played at the same venue on Monday.

During the course of the West Indian batting, with Nicolas Pooran on strike, there was a small child reeling over the railing. Just before his father could react, the child was seen taking a fall and the father was shocked at this and couldn’t do much as it was too late to reach.
