We’ve seen baseball fans getting plunked by batted balls but they aren’t the other sports fans in danger of getting hit by a small spherical object.

A recent test cricket match between New Zealand and England saw one fan sitting in the stands take a ball right off the top of the dome.

After New Zealand’s Harnish Rutherford cracked a six-run shot, an unlucky fan sitting close to the action takes the batted ball right off his noggin. Some of the security members in the stadium go to check on the man but he stays to watch the conclusion of the match since he’s one tough dude:

Clearly, he should have brought his mitt….
