Getting stitched

I was watching TV when the telephone rang. It was my friends who wanted me to come over. They were playing cricket when I went to my friend's place. I saw that there were only seven players . They requested me to keep the wicket. I remembered my classmate warning me as I had a bad habit of standing close to the wicket. But I thought nothing would happen to me. The bowler was a spinner and was bowling off breaks. As there were only eight balls left, the batsmen had to make runs quickly. The ball bowled by the bowler bounced, and the batsman who tried to hit it, missed. The bat came straight on to my face and hit my eyebrow. Blood oozed. I was rushed to the hospital and had to have stitches. I was advised to take complete rest for a week. Whenever I remember this incident, fear runs down my spine.
