Dhaka : A Bangladeshi teenager died in hospital in Dhaka after he was hit by a ball umpiring in a cricket match. The local police confirmed the same on Saturday.

“ A group of Youths were playing cricket in the field and the boy was the umpire. He collapsed on the field after a ball hit him in the chest,” local police chief Enamul Haque told. “He is from a very poor family. His father is a rickshaw-puller and mother works as a housemaid. They buried him last night,” he said.
