An um­pire and for­mer cap­tain of Is­rael’s na­tional cricket team died on Satur­day after be­ing hit in the jaw by a ball, the coun­try’s cricket as­so­ci­a­tion said.

His death comes just two days after Aus­tralian bats­man Phillip Hughes died of a se­vere head in­jury after be­ing hit by a bouncer in a New South Wales match in Syd­ney.

Is­raeli po­lice ruled out foul play in the in­ci­dent that led to the death of the um­pire, named by the Is­rael Cricket As­so­ci­a­tion as 55year-old Hil­lel Os­car, in the south­ern port city of Ash­dod. ICA chief Naor Gud­ker told AFP Satur­day’s game was the last in the na­tional league sea­son.

“We’re sim­ply in shock,” he said from the hos­pi­tal where Os­car was pro­nounced dead.— AFP Pro­test­ers bring US to stand­still
