Play of the day: Giant cricketer smashes into boy

When seven-foot tall Pakistani cricketer Mohammad Irfan went charging down the ground to save a boundary, the last thing he would have expected was a small child to jump out from the crowd and crash into him.

But that is the bizarre incident that occurred in a T20 international between Pakistan and South Africa last weekend, when 7ft 1in Irfan saved the boundary, despite skittling into the boy, who quickly dusted himself off and then sprinted away in a hurry.

Exactly what the kid was doing messing around on the field is unknown, but the mental scars of smashing into a modern day giant should prevent him from doing it again in the future.
