Cricket has seen some unfortunate deaths over the recent period. The death of Phil Hughes in 2014 shocked the world of cricket after the Australian batsman succumbed to a serious head injury he sustained in a domestic match in Australia. Likewise in 2013, wicketkeeper-batsman South African Darryn Randall, was hit on the side of the head when attempting a pull shot, during a domestic match.

The talented right-hander, who was also a member of the Under-23 Bengal squad, had captained the Bengal U-19 team in Cooch Behar Trophy.

In yet another similar incident, 20-year-old Padmanabh Jodukallu from Kerala, suffered a cardiac arrest and fell on the ground. The bowler died on the ground just before bowling a delivery. He was a resident of Uppala in Kasaragode, and that he was subsequently taken to a nearby hospital. He was declared to have died due to cardiac arrest.

Here is the video the incident where the commentator can be heard saying that Padmanabh had bowled three extras upto that point and was standing at the start of his run up to get another delivery in before collapsing.

Reacting to the incident immediately, on-field umpires and players rushed to him for help.

Sad though, but this is one of the painful prices that players have to sometime pay for being active in the game.
