The MCG paused in shock when Melbourne Stars skipper John Hastings’ helmet came flying off his head after coming into contact with a lethal bouncer bowled by Brisbane Heat’s all-rounder Ben Cutting.
Hastings tried to pull Cutting over the rope as Melbourne Stars tried to salvage some late runs, but instead, he copped 129 km/h of force straight to the face.
As the helmet collected his bearings, he managed to avoid being bowled by kicking the Kookaburra away from the stumps.
Here’s the video:
