Broadcaster Fox Sports has apologised to Anrich Nortje and the South Africa team after the pacer was knocked down by the flying spidercam in the outfield on the second day of the second Test, underway at the MCG.
Nortje confirmed after Stumps that he was doing okay, despite being hit on his left shoulder and elbow. He was able to clock fiery speeds notwithstanding the blow. Cricket Australia confirmed that spidercam would be operated with added safety measures to ensure such an incident doesn’t occur again.
